Sophomores Work Hard Against 
Heavy Youngsters. 

Once more the freshman class made 
the campus pond swell its banks as the 
class of 1926 pulled its opponents 
through the water in the annual sixty 
man rope pull last Saturday afternoon. 

An 800 foot rope was stretched across 
the pond with sixty sophs on one end 
aud sixty frosh on the other. At the 
first pistol shot the sophomores took up 
the slack in the rope, and under the 
direction of "Joe" Cormier, "Larry" 
Jones, "Gus" Gustafson and "Art" 
Buckley, they slowly but surely started 
the freshman toward the water. At the 
end of about five minutes the last of the 
freshmen was in the water, and the 
word was wrongly passed along the

Right Point of View Most Important 
Thing in College. 


Competition for the Collegian Board 
Starts at Once. 
Meeting in the Collegian office 
mmediately after assembly ThurB- 

Iday. J. G. Read, 

Managing Editor. 

Last Sunday President Butterfield 
gave his opening address to the student 
body in Bowker Auditorium. He dis- 
cussed the acquisition of the right point 
of view as the most significant and en- 
during thing secured at college. 

He discussed the problem of educa- 
tion from several points of view. What 
is education? Where do we get if.' 
What is itB purpose ? Upon all of those 
points no definite answer could be given. 
Pres. Butterfield stated that even in one 
college widely differing opinions are 
held as to what the meaning of educa- 
tion might be. Where he gels it is 
largely due to the student himself. He 
may draw it wholly from the classroom 
or be may draw upon his activities and 
personal friendships. 

Quoting Liberty H. Bailey, the great 
educator, Pres. Butterfield said "The 
point of view is the most important con- 
sideration of college education." Ue 
illustrated his point by giving a few 
differences in points of view of various 
colleges. In giving the subjects on 
which college men should try to gain 
the right point of view he said "First, 
hard work is the price of really worthy 
success; second, man's task is not to 
make a living but to live a life; and 
third, I crave for every college man and 
woman tbe acquiring of the view that 
religion is the very heart of life." 

President Butterfield advised all stu- 
dents to study modern problems of 
capital and labor, to study the rural 
problem, to have a view regarding edu- 
cation, to have an idea of some definite 
foreign policy, and in having all these 
views take pains to cultivate the habit 
of reflective thinking. 

Srcap Goes to Sophomores 88-57. 

"Evening .lollies" were in evidence 
for tbe first time this year at college M 
Thursday evening when the annual 
freshman-sophomore pajama light was 
held. The sophomores took the buttle 
by winning HH points to the freshmen's 


The freshmen appeared at the drill 
ball at Ml, and were forced to listen 
for some time to the ravings of "Ted" 
(Jrant and "Larry" Jones, who en- 
deavored Ifl put "the fear of the Lord" 
into the hearts of the newcomers and 
who were loudly applauded by their 
classmates with paddle beats and 
shouts. After the sermons, the sopho- 
BOrw lined up outside the drill hall, 
and tbe frosh went down the lane, one 
by one, kindly assisted by the paddles 
of their loving predecessors. 

When all had run their races, they 
wore lined up by "<•' sophs and paraded 
about the campus, making an inter- 
esting picture in their varicolored 
pajaman .mil uighisbuU. The p.n:u\ 
ended on Freshman Field where a pen 
hail been roped off. 

After seven minutes of lively wrestl- 
ing, the freshmen were once more lined 
up and inspected by the Senate. Tabu- 
lations showed 68 nightshirts removed 
by the sophs and 3» retained by the 
frosh. Fifteen frosh were captured by 
tbe class of 1020 and 9 of tbeii members 
lost to the frosh. This gave the sophs 
the victory with K8 points, and the frosh 
:,1 points. 

Tables Turned in Last Quarter Re- 
sulting in 9-7 Score. 



The Mass. Aggie Football team, Ifl be 
known this year as " The Little Qfflflfl 
Team" went down Ifl defeat last Satur- 
day afternoon at the hands of the heavy 
Reiissalla-r Polytechnic institute team on 

Alumni Field to the tut f M, tflfl 

winning two points resulting from a 
safety when Harrows was tackled be- 
hind his own goal line after tumbling a 
shaky pass from center. A punt Iroin 
U.P.I, had put the Aggie team with 
their backs to their own goal line. 

Captain "Ken" Salman kicked oil to 
R. 1'. 1. who carried the ball to the ecu 
ter of the field before they lost it M 
downs. Both teams essayed line plunges 
tad end runs for short gains and early 
in the game resorted to Diluting tactics. 
Ilir hall was kept well in mid -field ami 
was never near either goal, except for 
the safety. The half ended wilh the 
ball in mid-field in H. P. l.'i possession. 
tosfl* kicked off I- Bflisfl tT w ■>• tb« 
second half and after several llM 
plunges which netted small gains it was 
Aggies ball on their opponent's forty- 
yard line. Sawyer and sfflOflOek took 
the ball for four and a half yards at a 
plunge and the "Little Green Team 
pushed tloir way steadily down the 
field until they were on the ten-yard 
line. It was here that "Joe" Cormbi 
displayed his ability, Ifl sending Saw- 
yer through the left side of the line 
three times in succession, the third time 
sending the ball over for a touchdown 
by inches. Much credit is due Sawyer,

off with f:ighteen MEN 

who carried the ball like a veteran ami 
with good work from his teammate* 
lore tbroagb the Cherry and \Viiit< lioe

.loncs made tbe tOOre seven to two in 

i be Aggiea' favor. 

li looked as though tbe game was 
ended so liii- as loorlog was concerned 
iini , receiving Jonee' klckoff on their 
ten-yard nark, tbe Trojani opened up a 
severe attack ol line plungea which 
went for aubetantlal gains, mixed with 
forward panea a blcfa were uncompleted. 
If, A. C, recovered a fnmble on their 
40-yard line, but were usable to make 
lirsi down. At this poiul lit. 1*. 1. re- 
newed their assault even more Intenal 
Red and Benedict pierced the Aggie line 

several limes for jjai lis ol I lilee to live 

yarda. The hall was rushed in the 16- 
yard marker. Mere Harrows was sent 
in for Cormier ami Aggie held their 
opponents for downs. <>n their fourth 

down I he Allies were (he viciiins of a 

bad break when Barrowa was unable to 

punt a poor pass from center, and in liis 
attempt !<• recover he lost the ball. In 
two driving smashes Uenssala-r Weill 

over the line fm a tally. Benedict 
kicked tbe goal. This ended tbe scor- 
ing and tbe ball was in mid-field when 

t he game ended. 

It was a line game from every stand- 
point and considering the tact that it 
was tbe Aggie's Aral game of the mm- 

son their work was highly eomineiida- 
lile. The Work of Sawyer in the haek- 

tield was ; , feature from the fcf, A.C. 
vi .,n,i point , wl ' one conld not help 
but appreciate tbt machine-like drives 
of Benedict, Benwalmr'a 906 pound full- 
back. Both teams tiled an overhead 
sltuck in the second half inn Aggie 
completed tour attempts to k. p. l.'s 
one. Both teams were evenly matched, 
though any vantage waa wit fa vial tors 
win. were heavier, and bad tbe benefit 
oi more experience. Seven of the little 
green men are Sopbomorea who played 
their tiisi game ol college hall Satur- 
day, and tbongb they lacked the smooth 

Work ins of having played several sea- 
sons togei her they did creditable work 

and will aid in the eoming names, to 
bring home the hacon to Aggie. 

Tbe summary : 

Good Schedule Arranged 
Eighteen men reported for the cross- 

BOUnlry team last week. Klevenof these 
are sophomores, three juniors, and four 
seniors. The burden of carrying this

Chiefly on the sophomore class since 
only one veteran, Hill, has relumed. 
Cap'l. Stevens. mi is also available ibis 
year, so with these men as a nucleus 

Coach Derby hopea to duplicate his suc- 
cess of last year. 

The schedule is as lollows:

The I "iisti man football season broke 
awaj lo a slow start lasl Thursday with 
only 25 men out for tbe team, Most of 
i ins material is light iiui if a few of the 
hiu fellows make their appearance 
soon. Coach Gordon and his assistant 
"Art" Pierce will not need to enter the 

season wiib any feeling of doubt as to 

their successful outcome. At present 
the most likely men on the squad are 
EJIlyard and Amstein, a pair of former 

Deerfield athletes, and Bond and An- 
derson, tWO oilier lads who have had 

considerable experience, 


Tbe Two-Year football squad under 

the tutelage of "Bed" Ball faces this 

season's schedule with green ami 
rather unusually tight material. Of 
tbe twenty-one candidates only two are 
veterans of former Two-Year teams and 
many of the men are decided novices at 

the game. Although It ie rather early 

to estimate the ability of tbe various 
individuals on the squad there are 
some who show considerable promise. 
If the Two-Year students wish to 
maintain the prestige enjoyed by their 
representatives of other years they 

must aid Coach Ball by Increasing the 

squad, foT this seasons schedule is one 
of the hardest a Two-Year team has 

evei faced.

You Freshmen Probably 
Can't Answer This — 

"What is the best milk produc- 
ing feed?" — so we'll tell you; then 
when your Prof asks the same 
question you'll have a correct re- 
ply all ready and waiting. 

Here it is: "Protein is the part 
of a feed that produces most of the 
MEAL has 40 ( /t protein (often more) 
available for milk production. 
DIAMONDS cost is such that every 
dollar invested gets you more real 
milk-making protein than you can 
get from a dollar's worth of any 
other feed. Therefore DIAMOND 
leads the list."— Q. E. D.

A merit-ail college who do not use up 
t heir entire quota of M 0tttif M Tbey 
have not the spirit of the true student. 
Their entire energies are directed 
lOWErd OOOOplog from work rather lhai> 
toward Boding work to do. The word 
••student" means "to be eager for." It 
origluftllj meant "to 00 eager for knowl- 
edge" but it seems to have degener- 
ated to mean "to be eager to escape 
knowledge. " 

Whether 01 MM the college is itself 
responsible for such a condition is an 
open question. Nevertheless such a 
condition (foot exist. One bears many 
boasts among students as to ways in 
which students have found more work 
to do. The large enrollment in so-called 
"gut" course*, and the large amount of 
unnecessary cuts which are taken point 
lo the fact that the average student 
has the wrong viewpoint on educational 
subjects. He should never have en- 
tered a college in the first place but 
should have left the lields of higher 
learning open for those who are thirsty 
for knowledge at any cost. The atmos- 
phere of the old-fashioned college was 
one of close association between teacher 
and student where the teacher gloried 
in, imparling knowledge to his pupils 
and the pupil sought lo make as much 
as possible out of his association with 
the teacher. It was a spirit of co-opera- 
tion between the two parlies, both eager 
for | common goal. Cannot the old 
spirit be again attained'.' It would un- 
doubtedly be for the distinct advantage 
for all concerned. 

The Point of View. 

Does the existing atmosphere of the 
American college give its students a 
false view of ediicaiioii by supplying 
them with t false premise iroin which 
I hey work out conclusions on educa- 
tional questions .' Do the rules and 
tegtilalions and customs til college life 
combine lo start the student on the 
wrong irack and give him a warped, 
distorted outlook on life in general ami 
learning in particular'.' And if so is 
this viewpoint strong enough so that it 
actually results in the drawing of false 
conclusions by the student'.' If such a 
thing is so it ; s certainly a serious prob- 
lem ami should be remedied, 00 matter 
how drastic the cure. 

Now what we are driving at is the 
following: Does not the average stu- 
dent of today look upon learning as a 
drudgery — a necessary evil'.' Does he 
not feel that he has accomplished some- 
thing laudatory when be manages to 
escape some piece ot assigned work Of 
when he has "put it over on the Trof." '.' 
And isn't Ibis feeling the direct result 
of the atmosphere into which he is 
throws as soon as he enters college? 
He limls a "cut system" which does 
not allow him over a certain minimum 
number of absences from class. Docs 
this not presuppose thai the student is 
anxious to escape from classes when- 
ever possible'.' In the old Kuropean 
universities, and even in the lareer 
Kuropean institutions of the present 
day, there is no such thing as a cut sys- 
tem. A man is allowed to come to class 
anil it would take a great deal to keep 
him away. The institution is not inter- 
ested in forcing the student to attend 
lectures. Kather, it takes it for granted 
that i he student wishes to acquire 
knowledge and it acts accordingly. 
Ami as a result I he students take a 
great deal more interest in their work. 
They tlo not feel that the college is forc- 
ing education upon them. They feel, 
on the other band, that the college is 
doing them a favor by allowing them 
to attend exercises. Yet how many 
students will you find in the average 

To the Freshmen. 

The members of the class of 1 ( .»27 
have been welcomed to the college by 
many people and organizations within 
the last few days. It remains for the 
Coi.i.KoiAX to odd but a few words. 
We are proud lo have you with us and 
glad t») make your acquaintance. We 
hope ibat you have come to old Aggie 
with a delinile goal before you and 
that you will keep it constantly in 
sight. The hustle and bustle naturally 
accompanying the opening of college 
ami the fraternity rushing season is 
over and it is time lo settle down to 
hard work. It is for you to realize 
that only by constant application at 
the beginning of the year can you mas- 
ter the fundamentals necessary for 
your later progress. It is for you to 
realize that the only man WOO attains 
anything of worth at college is he who 
keeps scholarship constantly in view. 
Activities are helpful if not necessary 
things for the average student but in 
order to take part therein be must re- 
member that "hooka come first." 

You remember that you are but one 
class out of fifty that has attended 
Aggie. If you are to make your mark 
in the history of the institution it must 
be by virtue of hard work. Kach and 
every member of the class must active- 
ly engage himself in collegiate activi- 
ties if the reputation of the college is 
to be kept up. There must be unani- 
mous cooperation on the part of indi- 
viduals and groups endeavoring lo for- 
ward Aggie spirit and to develop "the 
Aggie man." (iive the matter careful 
consideration. You are now at the 
start of the race. Whatever plan you 
now decide to pursue will determine 
your standing at the finish. Hard 
work and constant application alone 
can produce winners.

Prof. Gorockoff of Smith to Succeed 

It is with keen regret that the Glee 
club announces the resignation of Har- 
lan Worthley as coach. For a number 
of years Mr. Worthley has devoted 
much of his lime and ability to the 
training of successful clubs, and bis un- 
failing energy and enthusiasm will be 
greatly missed this year. Owing to the 
pressure of work under which he finds 
himself this year it is impossible for 
him to continue with the club. 
However, he has arranged for Prof. 
Gorockoff. of Smith college, to handle 
the coaching this year. We are indeed 
indebted to M. Worthley for securing 
for the club a man so well-known in 
the field of choral coaching. It is 
hoped that a large number of men will 
take advantage of this unusual oppor- 
tunity. Rehearsals will be held Tues- 
day and Thursday nights at eight 
o'cloek in the Memorial building. 
More attention than usual will be given 
to instructing the men in the funda- 
mentals of group singing, and the 
technique of voice control and tone pro- 
duction. Few cuts will be made in the 
number of men in the club until com- 
paratively late in the term.

The first meeting of the two year 
freshmen was a peppy one and pro- 
ceeded wiili various humorous remarks 
and occurrences. Tart one eoostslod of 
addresses by Professor 1'helan, Larry 
Kongley, president of Ihe .Student 
Council, and President Miller of the 
Senior Class. 

Professor I'liehtii opened Ihe meeting 
with a welcome lo the looomlRR oloss, 
paniculaly Ihe co-ed elemeui, antl fol- 
lowed by stressing the need of co-opera- 
tion between the two classes, and the 
advantages of an organized lower class, 
citing as an example Ihe class ahead. 
Some well-timed remarks followed, as 
to the work of Ihe Student Council, Ihe 
various clubs, antl the need of a class 
able to sing together. A titling closing 
was made by again stressing Ihe square 
deal all around via the short-course 
office, anil the pressing need of co-oper- 
ation between the el a ■ M l '*• insure a 
successful year. 

Longley then passed oJosg Ihe dope, 
making an especial point of co-opera- 
tion, especially thyotigh the Student 
Council, reading ihe constitution of the 
same, and explaining its provisions, the 
working of the Council, and the campus 
rules; also instilled the embryo campus 
spirit iu these new-comers. 

Miller had considerable advice for 
them as regards class meetings, that is 
getting members there; and also in the 
matter of class dues, or too collection 
of them, wherein lies the dialing part. 
Proceeding to election of officers for 
one month, no light task was en- 
countered, due to the unfamiliarity of 
the Freshmen with each other. How- 
ever, through the efforts of Miller and 
Hazen, also of the Council, enough 
nominations were made, mostly by de- 
scription of person rather than by 
name, to fill the offices. Results are as 
follows: President, Krnest Uayn of 
Springfield ; vice-president, Miss Maiy 
Johnson of Boston; secretary, Marshall 
Moulton of Ipswich; treasurer, Clyde 
Hartney of Athol. 

A social committee was appointed by 
Miller to temporarily care for any such 
[ contingencies as receptions arising be- 
' fore the class should become properly 
organized These are Miss Kalberg of 
KingBbridge, Mr. Kyle of Levered, Mr. 
Frich of Boston.

The work that was begun 
by pioneers like Joseph 
Henry is being carried on 
by the scientists in the Re- 
search Laboratories of the 
General Electric Company. 
They are constantly search- 
ing for fundamental prin- 
ciples in order that electric- 
ity may be of greater 
service to mankind. 

When Henry 

rang the bell 

If any bell was ever heard around the 
world, Joseph Henry rang it in his 
famous experiment at the Albany 
Academy. The amazing development 
of the electrical industry traces back 
to this schoolmaster's coil of insulated 
wire and his electro-magnet that lifted 
a ton of iron. 

Four years later when Morse used 
Henry's electro-magnet to invent the 
telegraph, Henry congratulated him 
warmly and unselfishly. 

The principle of Henry's coil of wire is 
utilized by the General Electric Com- 
pany in motors and generators that 
light cities, drive railroad trains, do 
away with household drudgery and 
perform the work cf millions of men.

ON OCT. 12 FOR M. A. C. 

New Custom to be Inaugurated when 

indent Body Hikes Over 

Mt. Toby. 

Aggie is to have her "Mountain Day" 
at last, after waiting for many years be- 
fore inaugurating It. Columbus Day 
will see a large proportion of the fac- 
ulty and student body of the college 
wending its way toward the summit of 
old Mount Toby for the lirst "family" 
picnic of the college. 

Tbe object of the picnic will be three 
fold: to reveal to the public the educa- 
tional features of the demonstration 
forest which the college has been de- 
veloping on Toby for some years; to 
call attention to the importance of a 
wise use of the forest lands in Massa- 
chusetts; and to inaugurate "Mountain 
Day" as an institution in the college. 
The immediate occasion is the dedica- 
tion of the new lire lower erected on 
Toby during the summer

appropriate to the occasion will be pre- 
sented under the direction of Prof. K. P. 
Rand oCthe English department. 

The public has been invited to be 
present at both outing and exercises, 
as it is not intended to be a strictly col- 
lege affair. In the afternoon there will j 
be an opportunity to visit various parts 
of the mountain, to ti averse trails, and 
to inspect the new tower. The view 
from the tower is considered one of the 
finest in western Massachusetts.

on the °-Ho A. m. train from the C. V. 
station, returning from Mount Toby 
station at 2-55 p. M., arriving at Am- 
herst at 3-23 I-. m.; or they may take 
the 10-30 a.m. car from Amherst for 
Sunderland, returning from Sunderland 
at 5-00 p. M. The summit is about two 
miles from Mount Toby station and an 
equal distance from the parking space 
for automobiles.

Can't Answer This— 

"What is the best milk produc- 
ing feed?" — so we'll tell you; then 
when your Prof asks the same 
question you'll have a correct re- 
ply all ready and waiting. 

Here it is: "Protein is the part 
of a feed that produces most of the 
MEALhas407' protein ( often more) 
available for milk production. 
DIAMOND'S cost is such that every 
dollar invested gets you more real 
milk-making protein than you can 
get from a dollar's worth of any 
other feed. Therefore DIAMOND 
leads the list."— Q. E. D.

We have seldom had m<>re satisfac- 
tion iu reading an article in a contem- 

porary college newspaper than we got 

iHiin an editorial appearing in the 
Rensselaer Polytechnic for October 
fifth. The article in . ( nest ion is entitled 
"Hospitality" and reads as follows: 

"We al KeiisM-!a i have alwayi been 

proud ot the way in which we have en- 
tertained visiting teams and their fol- 
lowers, and the reputation that we have 
made in this respect is no small asset to 

the Institute. Our teams coming back 

from various trip- have some comment 
on I lie \\a\ in which they were received. 

and this comment, food, bad. or Indif- 
ferent, always affects our attitude to- 
ward- another institute of learning. 

Seldom, if ever, has there been BO much 
Comment around the Campus about 

another school's hospitality as there has 

been about I be Massachusetts Agricul- 
tural College, Last Saturday's game is 

the tils! one vv c have played with iheiu. 

ami i: greatly hoped that this is but the 
beginning of a long series of names be- 
tween the two schools. The tplentad 
spirit that was shown, not only by those 
in authority but l>\ the stndentsof M. 
A. < . themselves, has given them a 

reputation at Rensselaer that will last 
long, l.vciv member of the squad was 
given every consideration, and those 
who "bummed" their waj to Amherst 
will not soon forget the kindness which 
led the management to admit them to 

tiie name at half price. The general 
opinion of all who attended tho name 

is thai seldom has Rensselaer met such 
a group of true sportsmen as are found 
at M. A. <'. While we feel proud of our 
hospitality In the past, is it not possible 
that t here is room for Improvement?" 

We are proud to be held up as an ex- 
ample ot sportsmanship, We feel that 
there is no greater tribute which can be 
given a man than the words, "He la I 

true sportsman." But reputation car- 
ries with It responsibility. Those w bo 
are placed in such a position have every- 
thing to lose and nothing to gain by a 

slump in morale. I'nderhandedness or 

We have been talkin» this year of the 

"Aggie" man. We like to think of the 

attributes which the typical "Son of 
Old Massachusetts" should posse--. 
And doubtless we all include in our

When Henry 

rang the bell 

If any bell was ever heard around the 
world, Joseph Henry rang it in his 
famous experiment at the Albany 
Academy. The amazing development 
of the electrical industry traces back 
to this schoolmaster's coil of insulated 
wire and his electro-magnet that lifted 
a ton of iron. 

Four years later when Morse used 
Henry's electro-magnet to invent the 
telegraph, Henry congratulated him 
warmly and unselfishly. 

The principle of Henry's coil of wire is 
utilized by the General Electric Com- 
pany in motors and generators that 
light cities, drive railroad trains, do 
away with household drudgery and 
perform the work of millions of men.

FROSH LOSE TO VERMONT |MC water main bursts 
ACADEMY BY SCORE 184). FL00D,NG pleasant street 

Fast and Hard Playing Feature Game. 

The Freshmen football team lost its 
opening game of tbe season last Friday 
to tbe strong Vermont Academy team 
by a score of 18-0. In spite of tbe fact 
tbat tbey lost tbe game as far as the 
■core was concerned tbey made a credit- 
able showing in face of the opposition 
that was given tbera. This game waB 
tbe first regular one tbe Frosh bad ever 
played together in and only three mem- 
bers of tbe team bad ever had any foot- 
ball experience before, while tbe Ver- 
mont Academy team bad played and de- 
feated Colby Academy 27-0 and Norwich 
University Freshmen 80-0. 

Vermont kicked to the Frosh who 
rushed the ball back to tbe Academy's 
thirty yard line where they lost tbe ball 
on a fumble. After several unsuccess- 
ful attempts at bucking tbe line the 
Academy started a series of end runs 
which brought them within striking dis- 
tance but tbe Frosh held them off and 
punted out of danger. Vermont started 
a set of wiug rushes which netted 
tbem a touchdown. Their attempt to 
score the extra point was blocked. 

Agaiu in tbe third quarter tbe Aca- 
demy scored another touchdown but 
were fought every inch of the way by 
the Frosh, who several times broke 
through and downed them for a loss. 
After this touchdown also they failed 
to make tbe goal. The Frosh started on 
a march down the field in the last quar- 
ter but were again stopped and were 
forced back foot by foot until the Ver- 
mont boys again went over tbe line. 

Before the game started tbe team 
elected Joseph Uilyard as captain and 
be certainly lived up to the trust that 
the boys put in bim by being tbe out- 
standing player on the field both offen- 
sively and defensively. Smith was tbe 
best man for the Vermont team and 
made most of their long gains. 

The hospitality shown the Freshmen 
by tbe Academy boys was exceptionally 
fine. True sportsmanship was shown 
throughout the game and some of tbe 
players themselves waited on table at 
tbe fine supper tbat was served tbe 
Frosh. Van Hall was hurt so that it 
necessitated his staying over night and 
every possible thing was done to make 
him comfortable.

! College Supplied from Secondary 

Hundreds of gallons of water made 
Pleasant street a veritable river in tbe 
early hours of the morning on Colum- 
bus day, when a six inch water main 
burst opposite the Aggie Inn. 

The entire road was under water as far 
as tbe Phi Sigma Kappa house when 
tbe waiters at the dining hall were on 
their way to breakfast, and a river was 
racing down both sides of tbe road as 
far as tbe waiting station. Tbe main 
burst early in tbe morning and em- 
ployes of the town water department 
shut off tbe How about 6-15, but not 
before a large quantity of water had 

A hole five feet across was washed 
into the road before tbe How waH 
stopped, but tbe water department got 
busy early, and had the main repaired 
before night, and the hole tilled in. 

The bursting of the pipe caused Ititle 
serious inconvenience, because but few 
bouses were affected by the main, but 
were quickly transferred to a secondary 
line coming from a reserve reservoir. 
Water was thus supplied, but bad to be 
boiled before it could be used for drink- 
ing purposes.

Interesting Viewa Given of Col-

Prof. Frank A. Waugh, head ol tbe 
department of landscape gardening, was 
tbe speaker at the weekly assembly last 
Thursday. Prof. Waugh was chairman 
of the committee in charge of the outing 
to Mount Toby Friday, and gave an il- 
lustrated lecture about Mount Toby in 
assembly to give the students an idea of 
what they might expect to see on tbe 
following day. 

After the lecture, new college songs

Last Friday" October 12, saw the ini- 
tiation ula new tradition at M. A. C. 
when nearly eight hundred persons at- 
tended AgKie's Mountain Day celebra- 
tion on the summit of Mount Toby. 

At 9.36 the C. V. train had Its four ex- 
tra cars loaded down with a sweatered 
and knickered crowd, including some 
forty co-eds. Half an hour later the 
same crowd, augmented by half a hun- 
dred folks who had come by auto, were 
scrambling over tbe first half mile of 
the Roaring Hrook Trail up Mount Toby. 
With but an hour to wait before 
lunch at the top, visitors climbed the 
fire lower, newly erected of concrete 
and steel, and enjoyed a rather uncer- 
tain view, uncertain because of tbe 
smoke ha/.e that bung over the whole 

When a few of he college songs ba-l 
been sung, the serving lines got busy at 
four long tables. Heans, rolls and hot 
iO|P, hot colTee, doughnuts, Ice-cream, 
apples and cider were made to vanish 
in a short lime. Large llreB in (he cen- 
ter of the clearing around the tower 
were used to cook the frankfurls. and 
each one supplied himselt with a sharp 
stick cut by the Hoy Scouts, and cooked 
his wienie to bursting.

Freshman Team Formed. 

Tbe ( 'n>8H Country (earn has been dili- 
gently getting in trim foT tbeir first 
meet of tbe Heasun with tbe Worcester 
Colytechnic team wbicb takes place 
Saturday morning of this week on the 
Aggie coarse. The five mile grind over 
the neighboring bills will test the 
strength of (behest that either team 
has to show and tbe race should fur- 
•ntsh plenty of excitement from start to 
finish. Tbe race will be run in tbe 
■ norning so as not to conflict witb the 
Amherst game in the afternoon, and a 
goodly number of students should be on 
hand to start what looks like a promis- 
ing season right. 

The men who have been doing well in 
practice the past two weeks are Steven- 
son, captain of track, Coring '24, Hill 1 24, 
Frost '24, Ward '25, Beem '26 and A. ft. 
Jones ft. These men will probably 
all start and should give tbe runners 
from Worcester a tough battle for (he 

The Freshman Cross Country team 
has also been formed and is practicing 
two or three times a week. Negotia- 
tions are under way for two meets with 
uear by schools wbicb will give Coach 
Derby a chance to size up prospects for 
year's varsity. 


The first Informal of tbs season was 
bald in the Memorial liuilding last Sat- 
urday afternoon, and was very success 
ful, forty-live couples being present. 
Music was furnished by Hob Wood- 
woith with his IS- piece orchestra. 

Tbe cbaperones were Mrs. Cameron 
from Ml. Ilolyoke, Miss I'armalee from 
Smith and Mr. and Mrs. Richard Smith 
from Amherst.

of the entire celebration, assisted by 
Prof. R. W. Redman in charge of trans- 
portation and R. W. Watts on invitations 
and publicity. 

After eating, everyone adjourned to 
the "Theater," a small grove nearby, 
where Pres. Butterrield in bis brief ad- 
dress of welcome said in part: "Today 
we are celebrating a good many things. 
It is a most interesting day to me for I 
have hoped for years to see a tower on 
Mt. Toby. This splendid lower, built by 
the State Department of Conservation 
cooperating with M. A. C, is a thing to 
be proud of and will serve a splendid 
purpose in protecting not only tbe tim- 
ber on Toby but also that of the other 
valuable stands of limber within a 10- 
mile radius. This day marks a new era 
in forestry; we hope that it will be the 
beginning of an annual mountain day 
for the college and we trust that all of 
our guestB of today will come often to 

Dr. Butterrield then introduced Com- 
missioner Bazeley, who said in part: 

40th Tower at 10-Mile Intervals. 

"Mr. President and Fellow -Conserva- 
tionist: It is a great pleasure to greet 
you today on behalf of the Common- 
wealth. This tower is tbe 40th to be 
built in Massachusetts at 10-mile inter- 
vals to conserve for tbe enjoyment of 
old and young this forestalion. The plan 
of building these towers so that each 
tire-lookout warden can envision a 20- 
mile circle around him from his posi- 
tion at (be center is on (be same princi- 
ple as your city tire stations— the idea is 

to get to the fire o,niekly. We have to 
en'ist everyone in (his very essential 
cause of preventing (lie tremendous 
waste wbicb forest tires involve and so I 
say to you smokers, both men and wo- 
men, be careful of your pipes and yonr 
cigar and cigaret butts. And to you 
people who go on picnics. I ask that 
you always lake one more last look be- 
fore leaving your tire to be sure that not 
a single live ember remains. 

"Massachusetts now Imports 80 per 
cent of the lumbeT it uses. We hope 
that sometime in the future we shall be 
able to raise all of our own timber and 
thuB greatly reduce tbe cost. The 
fewer forest tires we have the sooner 
this day will come. When you are 
driving along in your machine and you 
see a small fire beside the road, stop 
and put it out; two or three people can, 
near the inception of a blaze, put out a 
fire which two hours later may give a 
stiff battle to a thousand tire-fighters. 
If you see a tire which your cannot put 
out yourself, call the nearest fire warden 
on tbe telephone. Central will put your 
call through, for she knows the nearest 
warden. You will be serving your own 
interest for these reservations are not 
onlp for tbe growing of timber but for 
the enjoyment of every citizen of the 

Immediately after the close of the 
speaking, a brief pageant was given un- 
der the directorshipof Mr. Frank Pren- 
tice Rand of the Knglish Department of 
tbe college who was also its author. 
Music was furnished under the direction 
of Prof. William H. Davis, and signalled 
the entrance of tbe Indian Chief Melta- 
wampe played by Prof. Van Meter, once 
ruler over the mountain and all U the 
lands which tbe college now has as its 
own. The name Toby came from one 
Co!. Elnathan Toby of Leverett, and al- 
though the name Meltawampe has been 
thought more appropriate for the high- 
est mountain in the Connecticut Valley, 
il has never been adopted. 

As the Chief stood looking towards 
the distant hills, Theodore Grant '26, in 
cap and gown, and Capt. Arthur Nicoll 
'24, in baseball uniform, offered, as a 
symbol of student love and appreciation 
a short oral tribute, followed by the lay- 
ing of the baseball glove at the silent 
Chief's feet. 

In succession followed John N. Ben- 
son, farmer; Victor H, Cahalane,'24, 
wood-chopper; Lieut. Harlan Werthley 
of the faculty in overseas uniform ; Rob- 
ert Steere '24, in R. O. T. C. uniform; 
the commonwealth, represented by Carl 
Bogbolt of the faculty, followed by 
Allan Dresser '24, bearing tbe state 

The chief raised his hand to those as- 
sembled in thanks and goodwill, and 
disappeared down the leafy aisle. 

Yells of Mettawampe aud Mt. Toby 
led by "Red" Emory were followed by 
the singing of America, and tbe college 

Tbe remainder of tbe afternoon was 
spent in trips io the caves in Sunder- 
land, to various nearby hills and to the 
sugar camps, under the direction of stu- 
dents and faculty members who acted 
as guides. At five o'clock all gathered 
on the road to Amherst and were taken 
home by the trollies or in autos.

Tbe following editorial appeared io 
the Market Grower*' Journal of October 
1, 1923. Prof. H. F. Tompaon is head 
of the Vegetable Gardening Depart- 

"Interested heart and soul in the 
progress of our industry, H. F.Tompson 
as president has given the Vegetable 
Growers Association of America one of 
its best administrations. He is a man 
of practical mind, well trained in both 
science and business, qualified by farm 
experience and public service to under- 
stand the needs of the producer and to 
enlist tbe help of (he agencies that can 
serve. This last is perhaps tbe most 
important tase that falls to the national 
association. Such are the reasons why 
Tompson should succeed as president, 
and he has made good in fullest 
measure. We are to be congratulated 
that his help is ours for another term."

Art and the Student. 

Is the present day college education 
laying too inui-h stress on science and 
sociology and too little on art '.' Does 
the averaiif oollega student train his 
powers ot reasoning at the expense of 
his aesthetic taste'.' From some of his 
actions it would seem that he does. 
Take for example the decoration of the 
typical student room. There are gaudy 
banners of discordant colors draped on 
the walls without any apparent arrange- 
ment. There tire pictures of all the 
girls the student ever knew and a good 
many that hedidn't. There are plaques 
and shields and other articles of no use 
whatever except as they make money 
for some manufacturing house. There 
are unnatural statuettes and framed 
front covers from popular magazines. 
Nowhere does one lind anything of ar- 
tistic worth or anything logically 

And lake the music preferred by most 
of the student body. Bach and Beetho- 
ven are discarded for .lolson and White- 
man. Harmony given up for discord. 
Classic music gives way to "jazz." The 
"Wang Wang Blues" are preferred to 
the "Sextet from Lucia." We doubt if 
any of the fraternity house Viotrolas 
would know how to play real music if 
they had the chance. But of course it 
can never be proven for the Victrolas 
will never get the opportunity. 

How many of the study body read 
poetry? We do not necessarily mean 
Carl Sandburg or Amy Lowell or any 
other modern poetry but how many 
read Keats and Shelley unless forced to 
do so by the English Deparment '.' And 
how many of them enjoy it when they 
do read it? Probably not more than a 
dozen of the students in this institution 
own a volume of poems and probably 
half of them are ashamed of it. The 
nearest most of us get to read any poetry 
is when we see "Them Days is (ione 
Forever" in the comic sections of the 
daily papers. 

Hut we do not need to go toman-made 
examples. How many of the students 
enjoy the ait of nature? Too few of 

us notice the beautiful autumn colors 
and the grace of trees on the campus. 
Doubtless any of us would consider the 
open plains monotonous and uninter- 
esting hut we do not think of the beauty 
of our own New England hills until we 
can no longer see them. It is just 
another proof of the old adage that 
"you never miss the water till the well 
runs dry." We are fortunately located 
here in the midst of the most beautiful 
natural surroundings in the world. 
And yet we pass them by without a 
thought and give them not so much as 
a glance. We wo,uld wager that at least 
one-half of the students who attended 
the dedication of the fire lower on 
Mountain day were more interested in 
cider and doughnuts than in the 
scenery. Unfortunately the outlook 
from the tower itself was cut off to a 
large extent by mist but from the time 
that the student body left the train 
until it arrived in Sunderland it was 
passing continuously through one 
gorgeous setting after another. On 
every hand the wealth of nature's 
beauty stretched out. And, sad to say, 
it was all lost to many of us. 

Now this is unfortunately the case 
and cannot be gainsaid, but remedy is 
another matter. It takes but a little 
thought and a little time to notice 
such things. A few hours reading of 
good poetry each week will soon edu- 
cate one to an appreciation of its worth. 
A few more classical records and a little 
less "jazz" will make apparent the value 
of the former. A little time spent in 
enjoyment of the beauties with which 
nature has so abundantly furnished us 
will make us all appreciate it. We can 
be educated to an appreciation of art 
and, as the educated men of tomorrow, 
it is our duly to see that we round out 
our knowledge in this simple and de- 
lightful way. 




Wax Yesterday: 

"Education is the getting to know on 
all matters which concern us the best 
which has been thought and said in 
the world, and through this knowledge 
turning a stream of fresh and free 
thought upon our stock notions and 
habits." — Malhew Arnold. 

Sportsmanship Again. 

On the back of the football schedule 
issued by the University of Cincinnati 
appears the following pledge: 

"In order that I may be a worthy 
representative of "my University I 
pledge myself to true sportsmanship on 
and off the athletic tield. Especially 
will I endeavor to promote this spirit 
by securing proper respect for our 
guests on the part of the rooters and 
players in all events. Sportsmanship 
first; winning second." 

Aggie has already made rapid prog- 
ress in the line of sportsmanship, also 
attempted by the University of Cincin- 
nati. But the good work must be kepi 
up, if its results are to be permanent. 
Notice that the above pledge is effective 
off as well as on the athletic field. In 
other words it is a matter for personal 
attention. When looked upon as such 
by everybody, and particularly between 
ourselves, then and then alone will 
visitors to the campus breathe the 100% 
pure air of Aggie sportsmanship. 

Is Today t 

"The Goose Step" is the title of a re- 
cent book by Upton Sinclair, a man 
who has speul a year in the study of 
American universities and colleges. 
His conclusion is that our nioie than 
half a million young people in Araeri- 
con institutions of higher learning "are 
deliberately and of set purpose being 
taught, not wisdom but folly, not 
justice but greed, not freedom but slav- 
ery, not love but hate." In short, the 
colleges are imparting a spirit of big- 
otry, intolerance and suspicion toward 

Well, how about it? Is such the 
case or is the author some type of "rad- 
ical" to be utterly ignored? Even if his 
statements were exaggerated, is it not 
likely that there might be some cause 
for his criticism? Bead the book and 
judge for yourself.

"We should have a dynamic educa- 
tion to lit a dynamic world. . . . The

our predecessors if we are trained to an 
utterly unscientific confidence in an- 
cient notions, let us say of religion, 
race, heredity and sex, now being fun-

"Herein we approach from one angle 
the problem which more than any

Berkshire Graduate* Gather at Inn 
In Great Barrington. 

PiTT8KiKi.i>,<)ct. 12 — Berkshire county 
" Aggie' alumni gathered for their first 
fall banquet in Wayside Inn at Great 
Harrington tonight with former-State 
Senator John Hull presiding as toast, 
master. Problems of the college were 
discussed by various alumni, and plans 
were made for the annual world '"Aggie" 
night which will be celebrated in Tally- 
Ho Inn of this city, Nov. 3. The sched- 
uled date for world "Aggie" is Oct. 27. 
but owing to the presence of the foot- 
ball team !■ Williamstown. Nov. 3, it 
was voted to wait a week to hold the 
local meeting, so that Head Coach 
("Kid") Gore and Prof. Curry S. Hicks 
bead of the physical education depart- 
ment, might be there. 

It was also voted to extend an invi- 
tation to Dean Edward M. Lewis, who 
is a native of the Herkshires, and Super- 
intendent of Schools, Dr. John F. (ian| 
non of this city, one of the trustees of 
the college. 

Mr. Hull in his opening remarks, out- 
lined the relationship that existed be- 
tween the college and the Legislature 
the past year. He broached the idea of 
a university, but questioned the advisa- 
bility of changing the status of the 
college at the present time. The gen- 
eral tread of Of opinion of the alumni 
appeared to be opposed to any radical 
changes in the status, with the possible 
exception that the college might be 
placed directly in the hands of the 
trustees, instead of being under the De- 
partment of Education as it is now. 

Mr. Hull paid great tribute to Pres- 
ident K. L. Butter-field, who, he said, 
had done a tremendous amount of work 
in building up the institution. The 
visit of the Legislature to the campus 
last spring Mr. Hull considered a step 
in the right direction in bringing the 
Legislature and the college into closer 
relationships. Mr. Hull, who was grad- 
uated in 1KH1, claims the distinction of 
being the oldest living alumnus in the 
country. Fred H. Turner, 1891), also of 
Great Harrington, a former football star, 
was also present. 

The alumni voted unanimously to 
support the football team, which will 
make its first appearance in years in 
Berkshire county when it plays Wil- 
liams Nov. 3 in Weston«<Field. 

Other alumni present were E. L. 
Bnardman, Robert Wheeler, G. N. Wil- 
lis, R. M. Gibbs, H. R. Sheldon, R. W. 
Hurlburt, Arthur M. Howard, George 
W. Edman, William L. Dowd and 
George R. Lockwood.

Joseph K. Whitney, assistant exten- 
sion professor of landscape garden ing, 
has returned to the college after a year 
of intensive study in Kurope. 

Prof. Whitney, accompanied hy two 
friends who studied landscape archi- 
tecture with him In the Harvard Grad- 
uate School, toured Kngland and a good 
part of the continent in a Hivver. A 
mouth was spent in southwestern Eng- 
land visiting famous gardens, and then 
the party crossed the channel. 

Tliey went through Brittany into 
Paris, and then through the Chateau 
district along the Loire, where they 
found many heautiful small gardens. 
Six weeks was giveu to visiting the 
wonderful gardens of Spain. The suc- 
ceeding weeks were spent in following 
the Uiviera thiough France and into 
Italy. Ancient garden spots were 
sought out and studied in Italy, espec- 
ially around Home. At Home the three 
friends weut separate ways. 

Prof. Whitney worked around the 
lakes in uoithern Italy for a fortnight, 
tbeu crosied into Switzerland and 
through to Belgium. After seeing the 
noted garden spots of Brussels and 
other old Belgian cities, he went to 
Holland and gave a week to Amster- 
dam. An airplane drought Prof. Whit 
uey hack to England, aud in the ceutral 
aud uorthern counties he devoted two 
mouths to a study of English landscape 

The two ''Garden Cities," Letchworth 
aud Welwyn, were especially interest- 
ing. Letchworth was the first garden 
city ever established. Its population is 
limited to 30,000. The tity is rigidly 
districted, so that residential portions 
are quite separate from business and 
industry. Hound about is a broad, 
open belt of agricultural land. That 
the idea of a garden city is sound is 
demonstrated by two facts: The death 
rate in Letchworth is lower than in al- 
most any other part of England; and 
the company which developed Letch- 
worth a few years ago, is now prepar- 
iug to open a second city of similar 
plan at Welwyn. 

Professor Whitney found that lauds- 
cape gardening in England has been 
greatly impaired since the War, and 
that a minimum of time and money is 
spent on maintaining the wonderful 
estates. But on the Continent, even in 
the devasted regions, the gardens are 
being kept up and improved. 

The year of travel has provided Pro- 
fessor Whitney with a remarkable col- 
lection of original photographs and a 
number of plans based on Europeau 
achievements, which will be of great 
value in connection with his work.

If any bell was ever heard around the 
world, Joseph Henry rang it in his 
famous experiment at the Albany 
Academy. The amazing development 
of the electrical industry traces back 
to this schoolmaster's coil of insulated 
wire and his electro-magnet that lifted 
a ton of iron. 

Four years later when Morse used 
Henry's electro-magnet to invent the 
telegraph, Henry congratulated him 
warmly and unselfishly. 

The principle of Henry's coil of wire is 
utilized by the General Electric Com- 
pany in motors and generators that 
light cities, drive railroad trains, do 
away with household drudgery and 
perform the work of millions of men.

MASS MEETING DRAWS OUT ■>*• william e. barton 


"Em" Grayson, "Doc" Lindsey and 
Prexy Speak. 

Because of the inclemency of the 
weather last Friday evening the mass 
meet inn, which was to be held on the 
drill field, was transferred to Bowker 
auditorium in Stockbridge. The cheer- 
ing was led hy "Red" Emery, who also 
acted as announcer for the evening. 
Since Coach Core was unable to he pres- 
ent at the meeting, assistant 80Mb 
"Km" Grayson acted as his aide substi- 
tute. "Em" gave a short humorous 
talk and concluded it with an earnest 
appeal to the student body to hack up 
their team with all they had in them. 
"Doc" Lindsey next toook the floor and 
gave a talk on how the game was 
played when he was in college. The 
next speaker of the evening was Prexy. 
He urged the team to do even better 
than their best and beat Amherst.

Tour of Campus Made on Wednesday. 

Another group of notables visited the 
M. A. C. campus last Wednesday, when 
the members of the governor's council 
were the guests of Pres. Butterlield. The 
party reached the campus in the middle 
of the forenoon and made a tour of in- 
spection of the college buildings under 
the personal guidance of the President. 
A complimentary luncheon was served 
in Draper Hall at noon. 

Included in the party were F. W. Al- 
drich of Springfield, C. L. Burrill of Bos- 
ton, G. 0. Curran of Boston, E. B. Eraser 
of Lynn, W. W. Ollendorf of Medway, 
J. A. White of North Brookfield, E. 
Wright of Rockland, and C. A. South- 
worth of Swampscott. One member of 
the council, C. S. Smith of Lincoln, was 
unable to be present. 

After inspecting the college, the party 
left for Northampton to visit the insane 
asylum, as they were making a trip of 
inspection of all the state institutions 
in this part of the state.

on Pratt held, the M. A. C aggregation 
were the losers to their old rivals, by 
the seme of 7 :i, before, a crowd of 
nearly 41HHI enthusiastic spectators. 
The game, always a big attraction, fur- 
nished many a thrill, and not until it 
was nearly over was the outcome 

.1 s kicked off to Keusswig on his 

H-yard line. Playing a waiting game 
Amherst immediately punted to Corm- 
ier <>n his 30-yard line. After three at- 
tempts to pierce I he Purple and White 
line by Sawyer and MeOeoch, Jones 
tried a place kick from the.'..", sard strip, 
but the ball missed the crossbar by 
iio-lies though it landed well over the 
goal line. 

The hall came out to Amherst's 20- 
yard line ami alter an attempt to rush 
the nigged Aggie line which netted 
only two yards Keusswig punted to Cm 
mler on hi-* 40 yard marker, who ran it 
back lite yards, Hoflooob pierced the 
A mherst line twice for a total of live 
yards, and a short forward pass, Saw\. I 
to Cormier netted the remaining live 
yards for a lirst down. A wide end run 
by Cormier lost two yards gained by 
If eGooeb on a line plunge, and after an 
at templed forward pass failed, a second 
try for Sold goal was made by .(ones 
from Amherst's 4*-yard line but as he- 
fore the goal was missed. 

Wilh the ball on their 20-yard line 
Amherst sent Moore through the line 
for two yards, and Keusswig punted to 
Cormier who overran the hall, Salmon

Qooeb gained Ihn-e yards on a line

that Moberg took the ball around left 
end and running splendidly in a broken 
field ruled off thirty yards before he 
was brought down. Following this bri- 
lliant bit of football Sawyer ripped 
through the Sabrina line for five yards, 
McOeoch made no gain, and on a for- 
ward pass play, Sawyer tripped and 
was thrown for a seven yard loss. The 
quarter ended. 

Beginning the second quarter Moberg 
kicked offside on Amherst's It yard 
zone. Keusswig punted to the center 
of the field, and Cormier ran back live 
yards. (iustafson ami McOeoch made 
three yards together through the line 
and Moberg punted. One attempt at 
I line plunging netted the Purple and

Here McUeoch churned the Amherst 
line and had made thirty yards before 
belOf brottgBl down. This seemed to 
Kive the visitors new Hffatlug spirit, and 
Sawyer carried the ball twelve yards 
for a first down. A^ie attacked the 
opponent line live times in qutek suc- 
cession wh'ch netted fourteen yards and 
brought the ball on Amherst's 12 yard 
territory, a favorable position for a place 
kick. Jones attempt proved successful 
and Aggie led, 8-0. 

Jones kicked off to Amherst's It) yard 
line. A line plunge proved unsuccess- 
ful and Amherst punted. Cormier lost 
two yards and Moberjj made five, but a 
fifteen yard penalty for holding put the 
ball on Aggie's « yard chalkmark. Mo 
berg punted to his own 35 yard line and 
Amherst started a s'eire for a touchdown. 
Hill carried the pigskin six yards, Cap- 
tain Keusswiu made three more, and 
Hill made first down. The ball was in a 
favorable position and N'ail was sent in 
to drop-kick but the ball went wide and 
it was A«uie's ball on the 20 yard line. 
Mctieoch made two yards on a line 
plunge, but Moherg lost H, while throw- 
inn a forward and a 5 yard penally was 
indicted foi delaying the game. Aggie 
punted, and Amherst attempted a for- 
ward pass after two line plunges had 
gained six yards, but the pass was 
grounded and the half ended. 

Jones kicked off in the second half, 
and Hill made eight yards. After two 
more line plays, one resulting in a live 
yard penalty for offside, Amherst com- 
pleted a forward for a gain of twelve 
yards With only a few minutes of the 
third quarter away, Amherst opened up 
a brilliant aerial attack. The second at- 
tempt at a forward was successful, and 
Drew, the bad man in the Amherst offen- 
sive picked a seemingly impossible 
heave out of the air, while running at 
top speed and dashed across the line 
for the touchdown which sewed up the 
the game. The goal was kicked by 
Hill for the extra point. 

From this point until Iheendofthe 
game Amherst seemed contended to let 
the score remaiu as it was, and did not 
force the uanie, although it was ap- 
parent that the players lacked the 
aggressive driving power that was man- 
ifest in the early minutes of the second 
half. Aggie strove valiantly to put 
across a touchdown, and twice were 
within striking distance of the Amherst 
goal line but the Purple defence stiffen- 
ed and the ball was puuted out of 
danger on both occasions before any 
damage was done. 

In the last few minutes of play both 
teams tried an overhead game, but 
neither were successful in completing 
any forwards. One of the breaks of 
the game which went to Amherst and 
robbed Aggie of a probable touchdown 
was the blocking of Reusswig's punt 
early in the last quarter. The ball 
bounded back after an Aggie player 
had stopped it, and in the scrimmage a- 
bove it Heusswig fell on it. The ball 
was then on the 8 yard line aud would 
have meant a win for Aggie but for 
this incident. 

Both teams played good football and 
nothing but the best of sportsmanship 
was shown by the players on both sides. 
The teams were evenly matched, as to 
experience during the season and 
weight, the Aggies' having any edge in 
this respect. 

Since relations were resumed three 
years ago Amherst has beaten twice to 
Aggie's once, and all the games were 

won by the home team. Aggie enter- 
tains next year.

race was a decided struggle throughout 
and the large crowd which gathered to 
see the finish had reason to cheer the 
Aggie representatives for their excel- 
lent showing. Captain Stevenson was 
the first man to cross the line followed 
by Forbes of W. 1'. I. in second place 
and Beein, an Aggie sophomore, who 
ran a very creditable race, third. Hill, 
the only veteran of last year's team, was 
injured during the course of the race 
but he fought his way to the finish in 
tenth place. 

From their first appearance in compe- 
tition our cross country team seemed 
perfectly fitted to carry on the standard 
of supremacy which their predecessors 
have always borne. With Hill and 
"Dick" Smith back in their stride again 
after having ridden themselves of their 
minor injuries, and the rest of the team 
running as they did last Saturday a win 
over Wesleyan next Saturday seems 
extremely probable.

The Amherst Game. 

Last Saturday s game, although a de- 
feat for the Aggies, did more to show 
the calibre of her athletes than any vic- 
tory ever could. It is one tiling to play 
the game fail when all goes well and 
quite another to maintain the height of 
purpose and method when the fates arc 
against one We were very much pleased 

to see the sportsmanship of A ggis men 

brought forth so clearly. 

To begin with, the |SSM was cleanly 
played. There were surprisingly few 
penalties considering the spirit and de- 
termination showed by the players on 
either side. What penalties there were 
came from minor technicalities rather 
than from open disregard for the rules. 
While both teams were lighting their 
hardest and giving their best to their 
institutions they seemed to Icel that it 

was better to lone than to resor t u> tac- 
tics of an underhanded nature. 

But it was not only the players who 
showed eonrteS) during the game. Both 
sides of the field were banked with 
spectators over whom no official kept 
guard. Here there was no ahsolute 
necessity for fair play and no penalty 
for infringement of propriety. Here 
were the people who. vitally interested 
in the game, could act as they would 
without fear of direct retaliation. And 
the noteworthy feature of the situation 
was that the on-lookerson both sides of 
the gridiron obeyed the unwritten rules 
of the game as well as the twenty-two 
participants obeyed the written rules of 
the contest. There was no end of cheer- 
ing, to be sure. Kach man was keyed 
to a high pitch and almost delirious in 
the hope that his representatives would 
come out ahead. But personalities and 
private antipathies were entirely elimi- 
nated from the yelling. Organized 
cheering look precedence over mob ex- 
hortation. Nothing was said or done by 
the mem b e r s of either student body 
t hat "left a had tnstfl In the mouth'" af- 
ter I he game \va> OVOf, 

Is not such I friendly rivalry worth

"colleger" Is suffering from a collision 
with a mass of inert material, which he 
calls "the Faculty", and blames it for 
humping. What is the power la the 
vehicle which really runs into him? Is 
it noi our old and well known friend, 
that 'Law of Force" (and of Happi- 
ness!)— "For every action there is an 
equal and opposite reaction" '.' But re- 
action is not always instantly mani- 
fested— it is cumulative— a point we are 
apt to forget. 

Many little right acts, when multi- 
plied by time, will surely generate an 
equal force to that of the "bumping", 
one which will make the Faculty the 
"colleger's" friends. He expects an 
instant reaction from a few little right 
acts. That is not possible. His loss of 
favor with the Faculty was not the in- 
stant reaction to a few little wrong acts. 
It took many, and it takes time, to 
bring on the collision. It will take 
many, and it will take time, to produce 
a similar effect in the right direction. 

When "life is against us", shall "col- 
legers" have the sense and courage to 
recognise the Law, and make it our 
servant— yes, and our saviour t Step 
by step, minute by minute, right 
thought and right little word, and right 
little deed, repealed and repeated and 
never relaxed, when multiplied by 
time, will surely immutably, create an 
equal force, operating in the way we 
want to go. Is it a monotonous 
method/ Did we find it monotonous 
getting where we are? We did not. 
Nor shall we in the other case— if we 
use "memory, understanding and will". 
We have proved beyond peradvenlure 
that we have great powers, with which 
to generate great forces; then let us use 
these proven powers to bring us ela- 
tion, companionship and happiness. —

One of the important gatherings of 
the year was that of the Advisory 
Council of Women, who met at the Ab- 
igail Adams House on Friday and Sat- 
urday. The members of the Council 
are prominent in educational and pro- 
fessional lite in Massachusetts. The 
Faculty is grateful for the willingness 
of the very busy women to come here 
at their own expense to advise concern- 
ing policies which affect the women 

The Co-Ed Column 

Dr. Joel B. Ooldtbwait lectured last 
Wednesday morning at StOCkbrldgS 
Hall before the women students on "The 
Importance of Good Posture." 

The S. C. S. went hiking Sunday. 
Several of its members went on a bacon 
bat to Orient Springs in the afternoon 
and several others hiked the Range. 

Mollie Lewis, Kleanor Haieman, 
Frances Martin, Rose Labiovitz and 
Kdna Mather, all '2H, Beatrice Kleyla 
Two-year '2H, Helen (iron! ex-'2"> and 
Ha/.el Logan ex-'25 were on campus this 
week-end. Saturday evening Miss 
Skinner entertained the '23 girls at her 
borne. On Sunday morning, the girls of 
'2.1 and "25 hiked to the Rifle Range and 
cooked their breakfast there. 


The past week has brought many vis- 
itors to the campus. The remark made 
by nearly all of them, even those who 
are prominent in educational work, 
runs like this: "Mr. President, I had 
no conception of what you have here." 




A "Colleger's" Problem 

We have tio word describing the male 
who is all but ready for college. He is 
not a school boy. Too rarely, alas, is 
he a scholar. He is not a man. He is 
not a boy. "Squire" — the halfway 
stage between Page aud. Knight was 
used in the days of chivalry, but it has 
no such connection today. So let us 
use the term "colleger" to describe this 
part boy, part man unit of today, facing 
life and its problems, pulling forward 
and back, thinking himself a man, yet 
knowing he is not, swept again and 
again by feelings, desires, and even 
powers, that are lbs foreguard and 
even forebodings of manhood; feeling 
also the impulses, desires and irres- 
ponsibilities of boyhood, yet knowing 
in heart that that day has passed. 

The "colleger" is having a hard time 
at school. He is positive that his mast- 
ers are prejudiced against him. and 
that he is not getting a 'square deal". 
But in truth he is not getting a square 
deal because he has not earned it. The 

Several hundred delegates to the 
Congregational Council made a brief 
motor tour of the grounds on Thursday. 
A surprisingly large number of these 
guests from all parts of the country 
knew of the college through its work 
on the social side of the rural problem. 
It is perhaps better known among this 
class of people than any other agricul- 
tural college. 

What some of the '23 girls are doing: 
Kleanor liateman *fl has a position as 
farm otlicer at the Massachusetts Refor 
matory for Women at Sherborne. Mollie 
Lewis is in charge of a small dairy At 
Hatch ville. Kdna Mather is teaching 
chemistry in one of the Worcester high 
schools. Beatrice Kleyla Two-year fj 
is working on a poultry faun at West 
Riuge, New Hampshire. 

A visit of unusual interest was that 
made on Thursday by the Governors 
Council. Instead of the usual very 
short stay of t his important body, they 
spent most of the day inspecting the in- 
stitution. Only one of the present 
Councillors had ever been here before. 
Most of them expressed surprise at the 
magnitude and variety of our work. 

The Advisory Hoard was on campus 
Friday evening and Sat urday morning. 
Following the mass meeting. Friday 
night, an entertainment was held for 
them at the Abbey. Mrs. Km ma L. 
Crocker of t-he Board introduced as the 
tirst speaker, Mrs. FrattCU King of Alma, 
Michigan. Mrs. King gave a short 
talk on "Flower Gardens." She has 
written a book on this subject and is an 
authority on garden matters. Follow- 
ing her talk, Miss Sarah J. Arnold of 
Worcester, dean of Simmons for many 
years, spoke on the fundamentals of 
education. Kathleen Adams, Marion 
Slack, Evelyu Davis, and . Christine 
Griswold, attired in old-fashioned cos- 
tumes, sang several old songs and 
Marion Cassidy and Margaret JShea 
brought down the bouse with their 

Thursday came pretty near to being 
an official visiting day. Dr. Joel Gold- 
thwait '86, one of the world's authori- 
ties on orthopedic surgery, spent the 
forenoon with us. In the midst of the 
big piece work he carries out at Smith 
each fall, he found time to come over 
to address the women students on 
"Posture". The visit of so distin- 
guished au alumnus with its generous 
gift of time from a very busy life is 
certainly gratifyiug. 

Under the auspices of the Athletic 
Club of Delta Phi Gamma, Rose Labro- 
vilz gave a talk at the Abbey last Mon- 
day evening on her experiences on her

"Tim Last Warning," which wan one

past theatrical season in New York at 
the Klaw Theatre, will he the attract- 
ion at '.he Academy of Music, North- 
ampton, on Thursday •••Blag, Oet. S6. 
following record breaking inns in Chi- 
cago and Philadelphia, am! just prior 
to t he Boston engagement. "The l.asl 
Warning" is a distinct novelty and is 
unique in that it contains a play within 
I play and reveals with remarkable 
fidelity the intrb atedetails ol producing 
a professional play. The lirsl act ol 
"The Last Warning" discloses a theat- 
rical manager's ollice and here the man- 
ager is seen negotiating witli Ihe actors 
for their services. In a perfectly nat- 
ural manner I hey discuss salaiies, lei ins 
of contract, (he parts to he played, etc., 
exactly as it is done every day in the 
large metropolitan theatrical oHices. 
This revelation (tl procedure hereto- 
fore kept from the public is in direct 
contradition of the theory of most the- 
atrical managers thai the intimate de- 
tails of play production should never he 
disclosed, yet the popularity of "The 
Last Warning" attests to the fallacy of 
that contention. "The Last Warning" 
enjoyed a run of Bight months at the 
Klaw Theatre in New York and won the 
unanimous approval of the metropoli- 
tan critics. The cast includes liyron 
Heasley, .Jessie Husley, ltulh Saville.

about the nature of the drama. It has 
been the ( ustom of |>r(»dueers in recent 
years when offerlog dramas to request 
the audiences and the critics not to di- 
vulge the solution of the problem, hut 
Ames and MeCIintic are going even fur- 
ther and not giving the slightest hint 
as to what may of may not be found 
out about "4 to 11." Il sounds as 
though it may be a mystery, a crook or 
a deteelive piay, but this is neither 
denied ol -confirmed by the producers. 
The many admirers of Miss Etobeofl 
will be eager to see what she has done 
a- an authoress. It is said that actors 
never write good plays, but this is no 
more true than the other saying thai 
critics are unable of creating a success- 
ful drama. Moth have been proven to 
the contrary many times. In fact, 
Wintbrop Ames who produces Miss 
Kobson 's play «h» produced a play by 
a critic, "The Green Goddess" bf Wil- 
liam Archer, which is one of the out- 
standing hits of many seasons in the 
theatre. At all events, if Messrs. 
Vines and McClintie are successful in 
keeping "4 to 11" a secret until its 
opening, the audience will find its in- 
terest in the surprises to be greater 
than might otherwise be the case. In

If any bell was ever heard around the 
world, Joseph Henry rang it in his 
famous experiment at the Albany 
Academy. The amazing development 
of the electrical industry traces back 
to this schoolmaster's coil of insulated 
wire and his electro-magnet that lifted 
a ton of iron. 

Four years later when Morse used 
Henry's electro-magnet to invent the 
telegraph, Henry congratulated him 
warmly and unselfishly. 

The principle of Henry's coil of wire is 
utilized by the General Electric Com- 
pany in motors and generators that 
light cities, drive railroad trains, do 
away with household drudgery and 
perform the work of millions of men.

"History is the Most Interesting Lit- 
terature in the World." 

"When America has heen moral, she 
has been right i and when she hits been 
morally right, she hits never had to 
turn back." Thin was the thought 
brought »>ut in assembly last Thursday 
by Judge Michael H. Sullivan of 
BoatOB. .Indue .Sullivan is a niembei 
Of the Host on Finance Commission ami 
an authoritative speaker on matters of 
history. He took as his subject "The 
Outstanding Achievements of American 

Judge Sullivan said that history is 
the most interesting literature in the 
world to read if one approaches it 
rightly. He proved his point by in- 
dicating some interesting and impor- 
tant facts regarding American history , 
which are very seldom thought about. 
According to the speaker, I he six funda- 
mentally important points in American 
history are: the colon. \$ had aprac 
tical self-government from the time 
they landed here; the Declaration of 
Independence; the ordinance of 17*7; 
the Constitution of the Knited Slates; 
the installation of John Marshall as 
chief justice of the supreme court ; ami 
the thirteenth amendment to the Con- 
stitution, the amendment which a- 
bolished slavery. 

"No act which Calvin Coolidge will 
ever do as President of the United 
Stales will compare with his acts dur- 
ing the first six hours after President 
Hardings's death." he said. The situ 
plicity with which he took over tasks. >\ 
the presidency, and the fact that he 
immediatly asked divine guidance in 
his work, will live forever. When 
America has been moral, she has been 
right ; and when she has been morally 
right, she has never had to turn back."

Aggies March Down the Field Time After Time. Home Team's Heavy 

Line Fails to Stop Visitors. 

In the first game of football played 
hetween the two leamB in over twenty 
years, Mas*. Aggie look the heavier 
Wesleyan learn into camp by the score 
Of 18-0 Inst Saturday afternoon on An- 
idrtU Field. Nearly ■ hundred loyal 
students followed the learn lo witness 
the lirst victory of the season, and were 
well repaid for their efforts. 

After the fust live minutes of play it 
was evident thai the. visitors were the 
aggressive aggregation, and before the 
end Of the game had rushed the ball 
nearly four hundred yards. 

Jones kicked off 10 Wesleyan and 
alter three unsuccessful attempts Ifl 
pierce Ihe Aggie defense Scriggins 

punted 10 Cormier on ale own toward 

line. At this stage of the game the 
Spe«UtO« were treated lo a sight seldom 
sec. in college football. Without los- 
ing possession of ihe ball, and without 
using any a-rial plays Ihe (lore men 
rushed the hall on straight line plunges 
to within live yards of the Wesleyan 
goal line, DOfoN the onslaught was 
checked and the home team punted out 
of danger. 11 looked for a while as 
though Ihe Aggies would sir.. re in the 
lirst period but the first touchdown .lid 
not come until the second. 

Wesleyan seemed to lack Ihe pep and 
power lo rush Ihe ball and at no time 
were they within striking distance of the 
Aggie goal. Once or twice, however, 
a Wesleyan back broke through the line 
and looked as though he was headed 
for a touchdown hut hard accurate lack- 
ling by the Aggie secondary defense 
soon slopped any outbreak of speed and 
Aggie soon secured the hail for another 
series of crashing plunges. Although 
ii is said thai the Wesleyan team was 
ureal ly weakened by the loss of Fricke, 
who was forced to sil on the bench dm 
to an injury to his leg, it is hard lo see 
where he would have been instrumental 
in stopping the onruch of the fighting 
farmers. As he is a triple threat man, 
however, his punting would doutlesa 
have been proved an asset, as Scriggins 
failed to gel off any long boots. 

In the last quarter, wilb three minutes 
logo, the boys from Hay Slate pushed 
the hall over for their second touch- 
down, and Jones was successfulin kick- 
ing this one, while his lirst attempt 
missed the the bar by only inches. He 
also attempted two goals from the field 
in the first half, but both tries were 
blocked by Wesleyan men. 

HeGoOOtt, Aggie's fullback, took the 
hall over the last marker each lime, and 
his line plunging throughout the after- 
noon was a feature of the game. Sulli- 
van, another Aggie backfield man

proved also a good ground-gainer :ill( ' 
several times made five to eight yards in 
line plunges. Much credit for the ex- 
cellent work of the Aggie backfield, 
however, is due to the seven men who 
opened up holes in the heavier Wes- 
leyan line. It was also noticeable that 
the Valley men were in thebeBt condition 
while hard tackling and pretty interfer- 
ence played havoc with the not so well 
trained home team. 

Moberg's punts for Aggie far outdis- 
tanced those of bis rival, and the Ag-

provement over that of a week ago for 
of the six passes attempted four were 
completed for substantial gains. Wes- 
leyan was only successful in completing 
one forward out of several tries. Cap- 
tain Adams and Uiley were the out- 
standing stars for their team and they 
carried the ball for small gains. Their 
tackling was good, though not very

Hilyard, Wardell and Anderson all 
do well on Offensive. 

The Freshman football team showed 
a marked improvement in their game 
with Greenfield last Friday over their 
first game with Vermont Academy. 
And in spite of the fact that they were 
defeated 6-0 it is no reflection on their 
playing ability but rather upon their 
eagerness that tbey lost. The deciding 
factor of the game was the many penal- 
ties which they drew upon themselves 
through holding and similar offenses. 
The Frosh offense with Hilyard and 
Wardell doing the greater part of ball 
carrying was very good and achieved 
more first downs than the Greenfield 
team. The defense, with the exception 
oi the left side of the line was staunch 
and kept the Greenfield team in mid- 
field duriug the greater portion of the 
game. The work of Wardell at end and 
halfback waB worthy of considerable 
praise, as was that of Anderson at 
center, Amstein at tackle and Hilyard 
at tailback. The individual star for 
Greenfield High was Thompson, t he 
man who scored their touchdown.

work was appreciated. 

Tbe Aggie rooters showed a fondness 
for peanuts between tbe halves. It 
might be a good policy to raise a few

From 7-lM) to S-00 o'clock last Friday 
evening the Abbey wan a busy place. 
Bveryoae was flying around borrowing 
something from Home one else in an at- 
tempt to make up tbe very funniest Off 
(.nttiest cDHiume possible to wear le 
tin- Halloween costume party. At H-(Ml 
the party commenced. The living 
room was decorated in Hallowe'en fash- 
ion, with tall bundles of corn-stalks, 
hideous jack-o-lanterns, and black and 
orange paper cats much in evidence. 

Tbe gills were divided into four 
Uioups, one of which ascended into 
what in everyday life is the Abbey 
altic, but on such occasions as Hallow- 
e'en parties has proven to be t tie abode 
of Gabriel, St. Peter, and the rest of the 
Heavenly hosts. Theie the newcomers 
were given such pleasuies as sitting 
among the clouds and handling the 
eyes, bones, veins, and ha'r which the 
iinocls had possessed as mortals. 

Another group of girls descended wi- 
the lower regions, where a very real- 
istic .Satan sat on a high throne before 
a bright fire and set unfortunate new 
comen to digging lot skeletons and 
handling Methuselah's brains. The 
Olhet two groups remained on earth, 
and one of them bobbing lot apples 
and the other playing games in the 
living room. 

After each of the groups had been to 
all four places, the girls gathered in 
the living room, where Miss Marsh. 
Miss Matson, and Miss I'erley awarded 
pri/.es for the costumes. Marguerite 
Bosworth was given the prize for the 
funniest costume. Dorothy Chilson for 
the prettiest costume, and Maude Bos- 
worth for the most original. Doris 
Hubbard, Martha EOBB, Mary Boyd, 
Bath I'utnam, Margaret Smith, and 
Elladora Huthsteiner received honor- 
able mention. Those whose costumes 
had won pri/.es served the rest of tbe 
gtrli with cider, doughnuts and pump- 
kin pie. The party closed with the 
singing of "Sons of Old Massachusetts."

8portmanship— Again. 

We have been preaching the doctrine 
Of sportsmanship in this column regu- 
larly this term. We have I, .-en holding 
up the Aggie man as an example of tbe 
good sportsman and we have compli- 
mented ourselves on our behavior in 
public. Hut evidently our opinion of 
Aggie men has been too high. We 
have been giving him more than his due. 
Last Saturday proved to us that the 
Aggie man, in some instances at least, 
is not all that he should be. 

A week and a half ago we met on tbe 
gridiron one of our oldest and strongest 
rivals. We were defeated, but we bore 
our loss as they bore their win, in a 
dignified and gentlemanly manner. 
Last Saturday some of Aggie's support- 
ers attended another game on the same 
field and gave an exhibition of conduct 
that was anything but gentlemanly. 
Hither in the chagrin of the previous 
week's loss or In a moment of thought- 
lessness these students shouted sarcasm 
and personalities at the players on one 
of tbe contending teams. They went 
far beyond the bounds of propriety. 
They ruined the reputation of Aggie 
sportsmanship at the college in question. 
And in this respect it is interesting to 
note the reception which was given 
this thoughtlessness by the supporteis 
of tbe team whioh suffered the calumny. 
The malice naturally did not go unno- 
ticed. But there was no retaliation. 
The uncomplimentary remarks were re- 
ceived in dignified silence and the cheer 
leaders did their best to see that there 
was no response in kind. Thus the 
student body on one side carried itself 
like gentlemen even when the represen- 
tatives of the other student body took 
it upon themselves to act childishly. It 
was a lesson in manners given in a very 
impressive manner. 

Is it fair and just for one element in 
the student body to endanger the repu- 
tation of the whole'.' The harm may be 
thoughtless and entirely unintentional, 
hut nevertheless it is there and it 
attaches itself to tbe body which 


"BottOI be safe than sorry'' is a com- 
mon quotation among insurance sales- 
men. How many of us have tried 
applying it to our daily life'.' How 
many of us plan our work ahead so 
that we are safe and not sorry'.' Of 
course we can all say that this is the 
reason that we come to college. And 
in the majority of cases we are doubt- 
less correct. We feel that with a col- 
lege education we will he safe on the 
sea of lite and not sorry at the end <>t 
the voyage. 

But in our daily work there are many 
decisions which we have to make, to 
which the quotation may be applied. 
.Shall I go over to Smith or study my 
lessons'.' Shall 1 put two hours into 
studying and get to bed early or shall I 
stay up until two in (he morning and 
cover the entire assignment'.' Shall 1 
cut this class and go t he movies or shall 
1 attend and lake notes'.' 

These are common problems to e\ civ 
student. We all decide them several 
times daily and wencvergive thesame 
answer twice. But wouldn't Ihe insur- 
ance man's slogan DC a safe guide to 
follow '.'

Sunday Chapel Commences Nov. 4. 

The Sunday chapel services of the col-

well on into the spring. This year the 
services are starling with one of the 
tinest speakers the college has been able 
to have here. He is Bishop Francis J.

Bishop McConnell began his paslorate 
in Massachusetts, where he spent nine 
years before going to the middle west. 
He was president of I)e Pauw I'niversity 
from BMW to 1911, and was elected 
bishop of the Method'st Episcopal

Maurice Cummiiigs '27, who was seri- 
ously injured in the automobile acci- 
dent of two weeks ago is much im- 
proved. Early this week he is to be 
brought from the (Holey-Dickinson hos- 
pital in Northampton to the M.A.C. 
Infirmary where he will stay for a week 
or two until he is able to handle him- 
self on crutches. 

Last Sunday, "Mac'" staled to friends 
that he would be glad to get back ami 
continue his work at Aggie. He also 
intends to continue competing for assist- 
ant manager of track as soon as he can 
gel out. 

Monday morning at chapel the Dean 
requested that any witness of the acci- 
dent would report all he saw to assist 
the State in its case. Their aim is to 
stop such reckless speeding on the main 
roads of the campus. 

Lieut. Dean '2(5. has recovered from a 
two week illness and is back again on 
the campus. 

"Tba combination of a boy and a col- 
lege,'' to qaote from this letter, "ought 
to accomplish Ihe following things: 

1. To prepare for a specific oc- 

2. To prepare a citizen who would 
understand the man's public problems 
of the day. 

:5. To prepare an educated man who 
have a real appreciation of t he literature 
and art, as well as a man who is a good 
clean, wholesome chap, in body. mind, 
and words. 

"OC course tbe college can't do it all 
— much depends upon the boy. Never- 
tbolOH we expect Ihe college to do all 
it can. The college uses courses of 
study, certain mot hods of teaching, ways 
of managing student enterprises, ar- 
rangements for personal touch with 

How could these things be improved 
at Aggie so that they will inevitably 
lead the average, well-meaning student 
into better preparation for the main 
objectives of life mentioned above.' 



Twelve Men Reporting Regularly. 

The Aggie orchestra, under the di- 
rection of I'rof. W. H. Davis, is having 
rehearsals every Thursday night in the 
Memorial Building. About 12 men are 
reporting regularly, and indications are 
that an aggregation will be developed 
that will be well worthy of upholding 
Aggie's standards. 


The first issue of the 8quib t dedicated 
"To the Frosh," is at the printers. It 
is expected to be ready for distribution 
by Nov. 10.

the Vegetable Orowers Association of 
America a judging contest for the youn-

This was the first attempt at any Na-

first place was won by Gilbert S. Watts 
of Pennsylvania. Mr. Watts was for-

Public Speaking and Debating, Walter E. Dimock, Manager 861 -W 



Sunday at B40, President Butterliehl 
nl M. A. ('. addressed an audience el 
Tufts professors, students, and visitors 
in (Joddard Chapel. lie cliose for liis 
subject: "Christianity and the Demo- 
crat ie Movement.'* 

President Cousens introduced the 
speaker, and informed the audience of 
the bequealhment of .lames Russell, 
which has made possible the long line 
Of Kussell lectures, niven by prominent 

President Bulterlield begaa his lec- 
ture by enumerating to the audience the 
questions which now confront the think- 
iBg public. These questions he set 
forth as follows: Is the present chaotic 
state of the world based on a lack ol 
proper leadership'.' A re t he problems 
too dillicult to be solved '.' What pos- 
sible solution can there be? One of the 
problem! he took as an example con- 
cents IteelJ with the present farmers' 
dissatisfaction. The tanners have 

shown great maasstreagtb la their fern 

butetius. as well as in the concessional 
farm bloc. To solve the problem and 
to be f*'r tO the tanners, the speaker 
staled, requires a Christianly demo- 
cratic spirit. The application of < hris- 
tian principles is l lie only solution 
where democracy exists, for after all, 
no democracy is worth baring which is 

not Christian in its motives. 

As a method of SBdtag the before- 
mentioned chaotic stale, the speaker 
presented the following plea of thought 
and action: First of all a Christian pro* 
graai should include the chance for 
every man to live aad grow right, and 
more than this, the incentive to live 

right. Every individual should regard 
himself as a useful part of all human- 
ity—a faetor of a great machine which 

is dependent on him for some particular 
(unction. Lastly, every Chiistian should 

regard himself a member of the great 

Christian brotherhood. To work out 
tble program successfully, the speaker 
pot Bled out, it is necessary that all 
mankind 00 operate and that the inlel- 
llgeot and powerful be the first to 
demonstrate the Christian program with 
the poorer classes following after them, 
lie stated that •"unless we Christianize 
industry, we can't Christianize society."' 
The second item in President liutlet- 
field's plan for t he solvinu ol the meat 
problems of the day was an item con- 
oeraiag the individual inner life — the 
individual search for God. He pointed 
out that the inner life must be calm. BO 
matter how great the storm around it. 
He also asserted that a renewed prayer 
life is necessary. He said we should 
have three large aspects in life: inspir- 
ation, aspiration and communion. 

The speaker showed the need of the 
recovery of Jesus, not only of his 
teachings, but of His plan of living. 
He pointed out that it is aeeesaarj thai 
we recover .lesus' personal touch with 
God-—thB< we become mote at one with 
our Maker. "To Jesoe, <-o.l was real, 
and individual man was a precious 
brother. Man must master Jesus' point 
of view." 

Concluding. Dr. Buttertield indicated 
the following formula for the reforma- 
tion of society: First, that good will. 
fair exchange shall guide the affairs of 
men; second, that each man make his 
own search for truth: and last, that 
every man manifest the character of

In a Changing Age. 

Along witli so much elue, the War 
brought to the attention of the World 
the <|iiestion of a revision of our ideas 
on I lie subject of education. Here in 
America, in nearly every college and 
university changes were made indicat- 
ing our interest in this revision. In 
general, however, we dismissed the 
question with bland assurance that its 
purpose was "training for life," hut. 
what kind of a life we were to train 
for, and what its value was we did not 

Today no generally accepted criteria 
of life are at hand, because we are in an 
age of transition. Kvidencesin support 
of this view are all too plentiful. We 
bee it in our feverish efforts to ward off 
the hugaboo of thought by much loud 
speaking; we see it in the swiftly 
changing posit iou of woman in society; 
in the numberless experiments made 
in the liehls of government, law and 
economics; we see it in the heightened 
uncertainty of youth and middle age. 

Because we are in a changing age, it 
results that there can he no standards 
universally accepted, no single concep- 
tion of life recognized by all. That 
there may he one fundamental concep- 
tion is true, hut an occasional restate- 
ment of it in terms of its immediate en- 
vironment is necessary, now as always, 
and yet no such restatement is at hand. 
Here, then is where education gels its 
chief value, and primarily it is in the 
tield of clear and purposesul thinking 
that the work of education must lie. 

In the colleges, happily, evidences 
are not lacking to show that many are 
making efforts to think their way 
through the problems about them. In- 
terest is running high in nearly all the 
intellectual channels of college life: 
the growing criticism of the curricu- 
lum, the attention to student self gov- 
ernment, the success of the National 
Student Forum all reflect the prevail- 
ing tendencies. We can rejoice at 
these, but we must strive for more; we 
must work for the day, which if it is 

Social Life at the Scottish Univer- 

The Scottish ('diversities differ from 
the older I'niversities of Cleat Britain 

in two respects. (1). They are non- 
residential. (2). They have been for 
some twenty years co educational. 

The students, instead of living in a 
College, live in room*, over which the 
I diversity has no control. They go to 
college to attend classes and labora- 
tories at which they must pal In a cer- 
tain minimum of attendance it they in- 
tend to qualify for silting a degree ex- 
amination. That is as far SS their sub- 
jection to I'niversity authority really 
goes. Apart from that the student is 
as much his own master as any citizen. 
and is (piite free from college discipline, 
and proctorial system. Work is a pie- 
dominating feature in Scotland, for 
there one majority of students have to 
take their university course fairly seri- 
ously as on their degree usually de- 
pends their bread-and-butter in after 
life. This produces a check on the av 
erage man in Scotland comparable with 
the disciplinary check of the proctorial 
system in Oxford and Cambridge. 

So though a Scotch student cannot, if 
he feels inclined (or society or discussion 
with his fellow, merely go into an ad- 
joining room, he can go out to his 
friends' "digs (rooms) stays there dis- 
cussing the universe till midnight or 
after if he feels like it, without the pros- 
pect that his time will be noted down 
when he conies back to college. And the 
man whom he visits can with a clenr 
conscience see him home, and again be 
seen home ad Infinitum in the early 
hours of the chill northern morning, 
when talk still surges round the prob- 
lem! of life, or when discussion has 
given place to the intimate silence of 
companionship. Many of the most 
cherished memories of the Scotch grad- 
uate go hack to the night when he 
walked in one frosty starlight and 
talked of cabbages ami kings in the 
splendid omniscience of youth; or 
when with Y or Z he saw the dawn of 
a summer morning on sea or river in 
his university town. The main occupa- 
tion of students is talking, for one can 
talk as much and as wisely in Edin- 
burgh as in Oxford.

Of distinct interest to seniors who are 
graduating at Midyears ia the announce- 
ment of a Midyear Kntrance 1'ian just 
made by the Harvard Graduate School 
of Business Administration.

permitted to enter in February. As a 
result of the experience with these stu- 
dents, the School is now prepared to 
oiler the same courses of study that are 
available to t hose entering in Septem-

justed that students entering at that

From this number only ,V.i2 could be 
finally accepted ami enrolled. A com- 
parison with corresponding tigures for 
last year of MS applications received

It was in order to meet this increasing

Railroad Will Straighten Out Own 
Troubles if Let Alone. 

Ceorge 11. Campbell of the Baltimore 
and Ohio Railroad was the sneaker in 
Assembly last Thursday. The theme of 
his speech was: If Congress and the 
people will only let the railroads alone 
they will straighten out their difficul- 
ties. Mr. Campbell quoted many sta- 
tistics to show the value of the railroads 
to the nation, lie made quite clear the 
fact that a great deal of the nations's 
wealth is invested in railroads and that 
upon the well-being of the railroads de- 
pends a great part of the financial sta- 
bility of the country. He also showed 
that the railroads were an important 
factor in the coal situation: Not only 
does the transportation of coal depend 
upon the railroads, but the railroads 
store up millions of tons of coal for com- 
munity usoh in case of emergencies. 

One point where a great deal of money 
is lost on the railroads is that two-thirds 
of the freight cars that are sent Fast, 
loaded, return empty. The freight that 
the railroads carry is not evenly bal-

las, Saturday in all sections of the conn- ' cussion of problems ■"»£££ 

lege followed the banquet. I Here weie 
two main subjects discussed. First : the 
question of control or supervision of the 
college by State authorities, and second, 

try where groups of such meu were to 
be found. Following are reports of diff- 
erent sections:

Bishop McOonnell, Sunday Chapel 

Speaker, Asks Things in Larger 


Bishop Francis J. McConnell of Fills 
burg. Bishop of the Methodist Kpiseo- 
pal Church in the I'nited States, 
preached at the lirst chapel service of 
the year on Sunday, Nov. 4. The 
thought brought out by Bishop McCon- 
nell was: "Do the work of the world 
with the thought of the vast love of 
God in your mind, ami thus lift it away 
from the ordinary to the level of the 
Divine. Think in world terms."' 

First he pointed out that St. Paul, 
when under judgment at Ca-sarea ap- 
peared to C— T at Uome, not in order 
to save his own head, but to obtain 

a judgment c cerning Christ ianily 

from a world point of view. The speaker 
slated that the kind ot man thai we 
want on the judgment seat at Washing- 
ton is a man who can think, not only ll 
trims of the I'nited States, but in terms 
of the world, a man who is abreast of 
the times and realizes the social and 
human issues. The discovery of a 
larger universe does not detract from 
man's worth but gives him a new dig- 
nity. The difference between a hinder 
an. I lower court is not that one is Hffbl 
and the other wrong, but that the lat- 
ter is light as far as It fOM bat the 
former goes further. The trouble with 
the slogan 'America First", is not thai 
it is sellish or mean but that it does not 
think in broad enough terms. When 
we think that half the population of 
the world is in China and India, a re- 
gfoa which we often forget, we must be 
Continued on peie 8 

The informal discussion was lead by 
Judge Fields '91 and bad largely to do 
with campus activities. The group 
seemed unanimously in favor of putting 
the activities into the curriculum and 
making them compulsory for under- 
classmen. J. H. Putnam 14 warned 
against a supervision of activities which 
would tend to destroy undergraduate 
initiative. They also expressed to the 
college, through its president, their 
loyalty and confidence in the present 
administration. They then organized 
as the Northern Franklin County M. A. 
C. Club and elected George B. Taylor '92 
as President and Elliot H. Taylor '20 as 
*ecretary and Treasurer. 

There were only two present at the 
Buffalo banquet. It was not considered 
a highly successful banquet but it was 
decided to hold another in hopes that 
there would be more present the next 
year. The party went to the theatre 
after the banquet. 

Worcester had a fair attendance with 
twenty five members present. They 

cussion with regard to a State I'niver 
sity or a State College. It seemed to be 
the sentiment of this group that the col- 
lege should be broadened out into a 
university. It wasdecided to meet again 
in December— the object of the meeting 
to have an address and discussion of the 
possibilities of organizing the Alumni 
into a more coherent and active group.

Williams Outplays Aggie Eleven. 

The Mass. Aggie loot ball team went 
down to a bad deleat I n a game Satur- 
day with the most formidable eleven 
that they have been up against this 
taaaea ll the form of the Williams Col- 
lege aggregation. Aggie suffered a 
H -0 reverse, and at no time seemed to 
have the driving power that was ex- 
hibited a week ago at Wesleyan. 

Williams kicked off to Aggie's 2M-yard 
line, and after one rush, a fumble hy an 
Aggie back gave the ball to Williams 
on the M yard strip. Three line 
plunges netted a lirst down, ami three 
more put the ball M Aggie's 1 yard 
line. Here the Maroon and While held 
for two downs Iml the hall was finally 
carried over. Fisher kicked the goal. 
Flay had only heeu going on ahoul 
three minutes. 

Again Williams kicked to Aggie, 
Cormier receiving the ball on bis own 
10-yard marker and being downed on 
the 80-yard stripe. After three at- 
tempts to pierce the Williams line hail 
proved unsuccessful Moberg punted to 
Williams' tO.jNrd line and it was run 
hack forty yards before Cormier brought 
down the runner on the 311-yard strip, the Aggie line held, and Aggie 
punted out of daagar alter receiving 
the ball on downs. Moberg punted but 
Williams fumbled only to recover on 
the •'.". -yard Has, 

Williams attempted their lirst forward 
pass of the game which was not coin 
plated, bX the next play was oil tack le 
and the runnel slipped by the broken- 
(ield of the Aggie's secondary defense 
and was brought down by Cormier on 
the next to the last line. Two plunges 
put the ball on the 1-yard line again

while the second was lost by one point 
to Wesleyan.

To tiik KinTim 09 tiik Coi.i.koian: 

In the editorial of the last issue id 
our Coi.i.koian the statement was made 
that the reputation of Auuie sports- 
manship was ruined by an exhi- 
bition of conduct which was anything 
but uentleinanly on the part of some of 
the Aggie men who attended ihe Am- 
herst-Oberlin irame. 1 strongly disagree 
with this untruth. Had the editor been 
at the name I know that he would do 
likewise. The shouts consisted of a 
hearty "yea" for Oberlin when they 
did good work. They were absolutely 
unobjectionable. A few men did in- 
dulge in personalities but such were 
not organised and were i|iiickly stopped. 
Aggie sportsmanship is just as pure as 
ever and perhaps a little more so.

Along the lines of the editorial ap- 
pearing in these columns se\eial week 
ago advocatinu abolishment of Ihe cut 
system we publish an extract from the 
WmtUm of Oct. 24 as follows: 

"A suspicion has been growing <>t 
late years that it maybe just as well 
lo treat university undergraduates as 
adults instead of as children. The 
creatures seem to be geltingout of hand, 
and sops like student self-«overnment 
and the honor system at examinations 
and student members on the Faculty 
Committee on Student Affairs were 
thrown out from time to time by more 
than one harassed Alma Mater. Hut, 
of course, the cut system and compul- 
sory attendance at classes was the prop 
on which Hie academic world rested. 
It seems obvious that if a student did 
not have to come to class he would stay 
away; if you did not believe it you 
could visit Ihe class yourself and see 
why. Now Princeton has taken the 
bold Step Of permitting the students to 
decide for themselves if and when they 
will attend classes. This puts a fear- 
ful responsibility on the instructor. 
Henceforth he must make his class in- 
teresting. At the end of the course 
he will also have lo prepare an exam- 
ination determining less whether the 
student has mastered his facts than 
whether he has any idea about them, 
or about anythinu. Some young gentle- 
men will never come to class at all, but 
it they do not and can satisfy the in- 
structor in those two points, Princeton 
is ready to admit that it is all right. 
Commonsense sometimes sounds alarm- 
ingly revolutionary." 

Princeton is not the only modern 
American institution which baa adopted 
thiscoure. The Massachusetts Insti- 
tute of Technology dispensed with the 
cut system lone ago and yet there is a 
smaller percentage of cuts in classes 
there than there is here. It is not a 
question of making the student attend 
classes but one of keeping up his inter- 
est and enthusiasm in his work. There 
is no doubt but that half the students 
in college could pass a few of our 
courses w'thout ever having attended a 
lecture. Hut these are the very classes 
which we wish to discourage. They 
arc the classes that lower Aggie stand- 
. arils. They are the so-called "guts". 
These classes have long been a prob-

Those people

are contented who

that they can do nothing about. 

We are truly glad to have correction 
made. Kegardless of the facts of the 
case there are many and persistent 
rumors around the campus to the effect 
that Aggie men had made a faux pas af 
the game In question. In fact the state- 
ments were noised about to such an 
extent (hat several members of the fac- 
ulty took it upon themselves to look 
into the matter. Refutation of the 
rharge by one who was present puts the 
matter in a different light. We do not 
know where the rumors started nor how 
they spread but we offer our most sin- 
cere apologies to the men who attended 
the game if we have slandered them. 
And as a sidelight at this point we 
might say that the conduct of Amherst 
men at theii game with Wesleyan last 
Saturday was not such as would bring 
more friendly feeling between the two 
institutions. And we are glad lo see 
that the Aggie men present took no 
notice of the demonstration whatsoever.

Chapel Speaker will be the Noted 

Dr. Albert Parker Pitch, a well-known 
figure in Amherst College, will speak 
to the student hotly next Sunday morn- 
ing in chapel. Dr. Filch was horn in 
Boston, graduated troin Harvard Uni- 
versity, '00, and I'nion Theological Sem- 
inary. He has received honorary de- 
grees from both Amherst and Williams 
Colleges. He was ordained to the Con- 
gregational ministry in 1901 and served 
as pastor for six years. Since then he 
has been president of A mlnver Seminary 
for eight years and professor of history 
of religion in Amherst College from 
HU7 until last summer, at which time 
he resigned. At present Dr. Fitch is 
lecturing. He is the author of four 
books on the relation between the col- 
lege man ana religion. 



For several years there has been com- 
ment about the campus, from both stu- 
dents and faculty, concerning the a- 
inoiint and quality of the college sing- 
ing here at Aggie. Because we have no 
established traditions as a college body 
which likes and knows how to sing, the 
interest in this truly important phase of 
our CURD put life has remained dormant. 
College singing WES doubt less Si its best 
at M. A. (J. in 1919, under the leader- 
ship of Fred (iriggs. And Fred is still 
interested in Aggie singing, and in

"What is the reason for the reduced 
attendance reported by Agricultural 
Colleges and schools all over the country 
t his year".'" 

Such was the question discussed at a 
meeting in Kingston, K. I . last week of 
the president's and representatives of 
trustees of the New England slate 

The consensus of opinion was lhat in 
view of recent bad times too much has 
been said about Ihe disadvantages of 
farming and too little about the advan- 
tages. There was a general feeling of 
optimism for farming prospects at pres- 
ent, and a consequent willingness on the 
part of those present to encourage 
young people to take agricultural 
courses. Steps will he taken at the col- 
leges represented to make plain to the 
students the genuine opportunities, 
economic and otherwise, which exist in 
New England farming for those who 
like it.

chance to help build the temple of 
world wide peace. 

He also spoke of the Memorial build- 
ing OB our campus as a temple. Regard- 
ing the quiet room in this building he 
said, "Into that room we ought to go 
from the rushing life about us for a 
moment of meditation."

Two Deerfield Graduates Play for 

After a hard fought battle with Dcer- 
tield Academy last Friday the II, A. C 
Freshman football team came mil on 
the short end of I 14 toll score. The 
winners had a much heavier team, Ihe 
line averaging 1H5 pounds and ihe back- 
tield IT. - , pounds. The Fiosh offensive 
was confined mostly lo line pinnies by 
Hilyard and Wardell. On the deteii 
sive Amslein and Hilyard, former 
lield men. were the outstanding 
players. In Ihe second quail er Deer- 
tield tried a drop kick and just barely 
failed in putting it over. During (be 
third quarter Ike Frosh came within 
20 yards of a touchdown. Deeilield s 
punter, J«M Itusso. and Scott, Ihe 
quarterback, starred for the victors. 
The longest run of the game USI a M

On to Williams -that expressed the 
feelings of the truck -load of co-eds 
stationed at the foot of the Mohawk 
frail in Oreentield last Saturday morn- 
ing as thousands upon thousands of 
automobiles hearing MaBs. Aggie ban- 
ners sped past them on the way to the 
game. No. the truck load wasn't ex- 
actly enjoying the scenery. 

After an hour or two, the "On to Wil- 
liams" spirit was communicated to the 
truck and it once more took up Ihe jour- 
ney over the mountains towards Wil- 
liams. The spirit waxed and waned 
again and more time passed with the 
truck stationary. But finally it started 
off again and arrived at Williamstown 
shortly before the finish of tne game. 
Afterthegame.ashort stop for supper 
was made at North Adams and the truck 
Marled for Amherst, reaching the Abbey 
about midnight. About thirty co-eds

Hiram, driving a load of Buffalo 
Corn Gluten Feed from the dealer's, 
passed his near-sighted neighbor,- 
Eben, on Jhe road. Both pulled up to 
a halt to exchange greetings. 

Whatcha been buyin, Hiram?" 
asked the near-sighted one, straining 
his eyes at the pile of Buffalo sacks. 

"Buy in' Buffalo, natcherly, Eben." 

"Well now. my eyes are gittin - 
bad. Course if I'd seen 'twere feed 
sacks piled up I'd a knowed 'twas 
Buffalo, first off. But I couldn't make 
'em out. Thought maybe 'twas a cou-

"Your eyes ain't so bad, Eben. 
There's durn little difference 'tween 
a load of Buffalo an' a couple o' new 
cows,— either'll give me as much new

Hiram's confidence in Buffalo as a

One day in 1895, Roentgen noticed that a 
cardboard coated with fluorescent material 
glowed while a nearby Pluecker tube was 
in action. "What did you think?" an 
English scientist asked him. "I did not 
think; I investigated," was the reply. 

Roentgen covered the tube with black

Roentgen's rays have proved an inestim- 
able boon to humanity. In the hands of 
doctor and surgeon they are saving life 
and reducing suffering. In the hands of 
the scientist they are yielding new knowl-

structure of atoms. The Research Labora-

New Method of Choosing Assistant 

Managers of Sports is Proposed 

by Students. 

Assembly last Thursday was given 
over lo a student foruiu, presided over 
by Robert U. Woodworth "24 and two 
oilier members of the Senate and 

The meeting was opened in charge of 
Adelphia. CoHstnith '24 brought up 
tbe subject of a sophomore society for 
entertaining visiting teams, such aB in i other two members of Ihe team, C. F.

operation in Dartmouth, Norwich and a 
number of other colleges. This sugges- 
tion met with much approval. Discus- 
sion on the honor system followed. 

Nicoll '24 proposed that managers be 
elected by their respective teams in- 
stead of by tbe student hotly. Several 
other suggestions tor elections of man- 
agers were brought up and discussed. 

The suggestion was made that man- 
agers' letters should been made dis- 
tinctive from players' letters. After a 
heated discussion tbis matter was turned 
over to the Senate for executive action. 
It was voted lo have the honor coun- 
cil report each term on the number of 
cases brought before it, and Ihe dispo- 
sition of each case, without publishing 
tbe names of Ihe men accused. 

Tbe question of tbe society to enter- 
tain visiting teams was brought up 
again and approved by the student body. 
It was voted thai athletic managers be 
elected by their respective teams. 

Amotion that the letters for manag- 
ers should remain tbe same as hereto- 
fore was defeated. 

Discussion was lively throughout the 
meeting and the forum proved lo be 
one of tbe best for some time.

Dr. Kitch was speaking about success

gave a message a large portion of which

that the rich young ruler was a line

they do4iot actually transgress any laws,

good. He would not go lo the extra 
step and give up his worldly possess- 
ions to lead a life of real value. He was 
a perfect success in after life, probably 
by leading an upright life, but he was a 
ghastly failure loo, because he let slip 
l,y the rare opportunity to make his 
life really worth while, helping to 
mould Ihe course of human history by 
allying himself definitely with Ihe cause 
of Christ. 

Christ, too, was a ghastly failure, ac-

always failing. His very life was a 
failure, terminating on the cross, the

climax to the season. 

The past two years both teams have

boiler of the argument was carried mi 
until the eml of the period, during 
wliich time Stevens also attempted a 
fold goal, which failed. It was also at 
the end of this period that Sullivan, 
Annie's red-headed oll-taekle haek, be- 
14:111 a hurst of speed that the Stevens 
team was unable tot-ope with, and as 

the whistle blew to end the quartet he 

broke away for for a run of 86 yards. 

At the beginning of the second 
quarter Annie started a inarch down 
the field which resulted in a touch- 
down. Seven line plunges netted two 
lirst downs, and three more put the ball 
OTer the goal line tor the tally. .louts 
failed to kick the goal. Nothing of 
special interest took place for the're- 
maindei of the half, and both teams 
kept up t heir spirited play. 

Hit h the third period well under way, 
Sullivan for Aggie again showed his 
ability to .airy the ball, when he took 
the pigskin for four consecutive lirst 
downs, alternated by short gains 
thioiiyh the center of the line by 
Nichols. Anoi her off-tackle play scored 
another touchdown, Sullivan taking it 
over. 'Ibis made the sere 12 t), lmt 
soon after this Stevens put over their 
lone touchdown. After an exchange ot 
punts, Hoberg fOI Aggi« intercepted a 
long forward and ran it back 2."> yards 
before being downed. Three line 
plunges netted a lirsi down, and auot her 
play around end brought another leu 
yards, placing the ball on tba 8-yard 
mark. Stevens here recovered a 

fumble and punted to I heir own -l.Vyard 
line. Successive line plays mixed with 
end runs marched the ball over for I lie 
third touch. lown, and as the try for 
point after touchdown succeeded, the 
score was l(»-7. 

For the remainder of the quarter, and 
well into the fourth, the ball was rushed 
back and forth in midfield, but Aggie 
finally succeeded in working the ball 
within striking distance of their op- 
ponents' goal, and Harrows' sent in for 
Cormier took the ball over in two 

This ended the scoring, and though 
they were buried under a large score 
the visitors continued to Bghl to the 
end of the game. Captain Laverie ami 
Callahan featured in playing for 
Stevens, while the work of Sullivan in 
carrying the ball and (;ustafson in tack- 
linn was highly commendable. Cap- 
tain Salman was also on the receiving 
end of several forwards .which aided 
materially in bringing about the Beores.

"A man's primary loyalty is not to in-

these institutions stand, - ' said the 
speaker. "Many folks are ghastly fail- 
ures because they cannot get under the 
surface and get at the substance of 
things. They fail because tbey are not 
willing to go under the surface and they 
are not willing to stand for the real 
things of life. It is the quality of what 
you do that counts, ami themotive with 
which yon do it. We must have the 
middle class of people who live a good 
life and are respected, but the real life 
is that enables you lo give yourself to 
the onward movement, the life which 
will live down through the ages.

What is it thsit makes it easy foi the 
graduates of one institution to secure 
responsible positions soon after gradu- 
ation while those from another must 
work their way up the economic ladder 
by slow, painstaking labor. By what 
criterion does an emp'oyer judge a col- 
lege whose graduates apply to him for 
work'.' What is It, in other words, that 
gives one institution the rank of a 
"first class college" and another that of 
a "second rater" '.' It is the reputation 
for high scholarship standards. Any 
man is proud <<• say that the institution 
from which he received a diploma is 
noted for its high standards along these 
lines. If the opposite were the case 
there would be no honor in having com- 
pleted its courses. 

Keeping this fact in mind let us see 
what is necessary if we are to attain or 
maintain such standards at M. A. C. 
In the first place, of course, we must 
have the best inst'ruclors that money 
can secure. Our teaching force must 
he unequalled. In order to learn the 
things that are worth while we must go 
to the place where they are taught. If 
we are to become exceptional men in 
our lines we must study under excep- 
tional men. But teachers of the neces- 
sary calibre are in demand everywhere 
and only by offering the highest sal- 
aries and the greatest opportunities can 
we expect to get ihem here. Naturally 
such men do not wish to teach at an in- 
stitution where they cannot have the 
maximum of liberty. We cannot tell a 
man that he must not teach evolution 
or that he must teach the recapitula- 
tion theory. We must leave his meth- 
ods and beliefs to bis own judgmdnt. 

And in the second place we must 
have a student body with high average 
brain capacity. We must have men 
who like to study and who can under- 
stand the teachings of the best profes- 
sors. Otherwise we might as well hire 
a mediocre instruction staff. There are 
two ways el getting such a student 
body that will be evident to anyone 
who gives the matter a little thought. 
The first is to make entrance require- 

ments strict. Never allow the poor stu- 
dents to enter the institution. In this 
way the difficulty is met before it gels a 
chance. The size of Ithe entering class 
should be limited and entrance should 
be allowed only after a competitive ex- 
amination. This will weed out those 
who never should attend college but 
who are altogether too numerous in ed- 
ucational institutions at present. The 
other method of improving the student 
body is to make the ■tadenlf work after 
they get here. We must raise the 
standards for remaining In the college 
and see to it that any man who falls 
low is immediately expelled. By ap- 
plication of these two methods we will 
get a good student body in the tirst 
place and we will keep it good after it 
gets here. 

In the last place, we must eliminate 
the so-called "gut" courses. They are 
the worst menace to high standards. 
Theyoffset any program of improvement. 
There are several ways of accomplishing 
such an elimination. An institution 
in which there are only the best pro- 
fessors and the best students will never 
have such courses. Every course will 
be hard and if it wasn't the students 
would not eleet it. But the gut course 
can MTM be done away with as long as 
too many hours of classes are required 
a week. Under the present system no 
one could possibly do all the work if 
every course was bard. It would be 
much better to require a few courses 
with high standards than to have hard 
and easy courses mixed together. And 
with a free-cut system such courses 
could be easily discovered and either 
improved or eradicated. No professor 
could afford to have his class perman- 
ently absent. 

Thus we see that the standards of the 
college can he kept at the highest point 
by the procuring of a high class of in- 
structors, by the enforcing of strict 
entrance and resident requirements, 
and by the elimination of the gut 

People who show their appreciation 
of college spirit by pelting the college 
band with rotten apples and rottener 
language, have had their training neg- 
lected. They should have made a glo- 
rious name for themselves by carrying

Here are some reports from an old 
friend who has been at the college many 
years. We quote them for what they

The students in the two upper classes 
may be interested to know just how the 
suggestions made) by the Alumni 
Course of Study Committee are being 
carried out. Most of these suggestions 
have already been partially worked out, 
and there are now four trends in the 
development of the new curriculum.

bast year in Assemhly the president 
of the Senate brought to the attention 
of the student body (he fact that the 
dignity of our Sunday Chapel exercises 
was being marred by the profuse slam- 
ming of hymnals into their racks, prior 
to the recitation of the Lord's Prayer. 
It was his admonition that all of us 
pay attention to this point in the future. 
This matter has quite evidently 
escaped the thoughts of the majority of 
us. There has been little or no im- 
provement in the recent Sunday chapel 
exercises over those of last year, in 
this respect. Such a condition can be 
attributed to nothing else but thought- 
lessness, and ihouuhtleLsness is no at- 
tribute to the Aggie Man. The grating 
and screeching and pounding of i he 
books as they are dropped — perhaps 
thrown — into their places, can wholly 
be eliminated by just the least bit of 
care on the part of each and every one 
of us. and thus we can rid the devotion- 
al hour of a decidedly inharmonious 
and unnecessary feature. We should 
need no further admonition from the 
president of the Senate, nor from any 
other source. R. E. Stkkkk '24.

Princeton has recently adopted the 
Honor System. 

There is lo be a wholly different 
basis for credits. At present only the 
credits of underclassmen are affected, 
but as soon as possible the credils given 
lo juniors and seniors will be modified 
to fall in with the new plan. Credits 
will be given according to the amount 
time required by the average student 
both in and out of class lo meet the re- 
quirements of the course. It may take 
some time lo make final adjustments of 
every course, since there is so much 
variation amongst students as to the 
time given lo complete any particular 
exercise. The scheme has been in suc- 
cessful operation at M. 1. T. for many 

At the end of the freshman year each 
student chooses one of four general 
fields of study, taking that one in 
which he will later specialize. The 
four fields open are: horticulture, 
science, agriculture, and rural social 
science. Thus the sophomore year 
points the direction in which the stu- 
dent wants to go in his last two years.

in his own country."

The slides on the Seabrook Farm 
used in the freshman agriculture 
course Wednesday, Oct. II, were very 
kindly loaned to the vegetable garden- 
ing department by the Seabrook Farm 
Company of Bridgeton, N. J., the larg- 
est vegetable growing farm in the 
United States. The vegetable garden- 
ing department wishes to give, through 
the Coi.i.koian, acknowledgement to 
the Seabrook Farm Company for the 
use of these slides. 

The Oct. l. r )th issue of the Market 
Grorrrrx Journal had a short article de- 
scribing the charts, "Eat Vegetables to 
Keep Well," which were exhibited by 
the vegetable gardening department 
during farmer's week. The subject 
matter on these charts has been re- 
quested for use in a Western Seed 

By the end of the second year, (be 
student is ready to choose a major 
group of subjects leading to a delinite 
occupation. This is not unlike the 
present major system, except that de- 
partmental emphasis is replaced by oc- 
cupational emphasis. But over-special- 
ization will he avoided since the college 
course must include training in citizen- 
ship and must take care of cultured de- 
velopment of the students. It is inter- 
esting to note that at recent world 
Aggie meetings Alumni opinion was 
decidedly in favor of giving a good 
liberal training in addition to good oc- 
cupational courses. 

Very gradually, it is hoped that the 
tirst two years, and especially the fresh- 
man year, may become a testing time, 
to answer two questions about each 
student: is he college material, and 
what occupation is he fitted for'.' It is 
hoped that plans may be developed to 
help each man find himself. 

The course in freshman agriculture 
is an experiment. Every student 
should get a broad and comprehensive 
idea of the agricultural problem; for 
an agricultural college to fail in this 
regard is a tragedy. But there are no 
guideposts. We can only feel our way.

Ihe second on a loan forward pass, and 
the third on a fumble by I he Two Year 
team. In the second i|iiarter the Con

down by completing a long forward 
pass. At Its* beginning of Ihe second 
half Connecticut had ils second team 
on ihe field. Aftei Ihe Two Years had 
carried the ball from their own twenty

The sophomore schedule is inannid 

hy a new system. Instead of having DO 
choice of major until llieir junior year, 
KtudenlH pick their major division at 

the beginning of thslr firs) ■ophomore 

term, and then specilic major as befors,

to lake up. his most favored OOUTSei will 
lie in one major division. Hy taking 
general courses in that division lie will 
have a heller knowledge of just what 
line of work he wishes to puisne. It 
also lo some extent does away with the 
necessity of a student's taking colllses 
which have no bearing on the particular 
branch of agriculture in which he in- 
tends lo major. 
The four major divisions l his term are 

ggrtaultars, Horticulture, Science and 
Rural Social Science. For toe next two 

terms Landscape Gardening becomes a 
division distinct from Horticulture, thus 
making fi»e divisions. 

The subjects required of all sopho- 
mores this term are Physics, liotuny,

The system of CUtS for the freshmen 
this year is practically the same as that 
of last year. The only significant dit- 
Ferenoe is that the absence regulations 

are set down this year as rules, whereas 
last year they were more or less under- 
stood to exist. The present sophomore 
class was allowed 1(1' , of absences from 
all their classes but the dean's office 
reports that practically all the absences 
were excused ones. The new plan is as 

1. Freshmen are required to attend 
all scheduled class exercise-. 

1. They will be allowed three cuts 
from weekday chapel and one from Sun- 
day chapel. 

:\. If a freshman must absent hint- 
Mil fur good cause he should, if possi- 
ble, gain the consent of the dean before 
the absence is taken. 

4. A student who lias for any reason 
baSS absent lloiii | class mu-l present a 
dean's excuse to I lie instructor not later 
than the second else* BXSmlM following 
his last absence. 

The dean's office re porta that the new 
plan has worked veiy well so far. The 
freshmen have taken almost no cuts 
Wit bOUt presenting excuses. The new 
system should prove benelicial to both 
the instructors and the freshmen. 
Freshmen instructors should no longer 
be troubled by poorlv attended lectuiis. 
for the freshmen now consider all their 
lectures as previously made appoint- 
ments that must be tilled. 

The dean plans to put the number of 
absences to be allowed fieshmen, on a 
scholastic basic. A freshman whose 
marks are high enough will be per- 
mitted to cut classes within reasonable 

limits. This -\-tem has been success- 
fully worked In other colleges and there 
is no reason why it cannot be worked 
hers with the same results.

Twelve Aggie men gathered around 
the festive board at Keeler's in Albany 
Saturday evening, Oct. 27th and cele- 
brated the fourth World Aggie High! in 
proper style. Following an excellent 
dinner the younger men joined with 
the older in the discussion of Aggie's 
many problems and concluded that the 
greatest obstacles to a settled policy 
for the college lies in the constant 
menace of legislative interference, a 
factor which can be combatted only by 
the efforts of the alumni who live in 
the state of Massachusetts. Those 
present were: Phelps '85, Dr. Fell '92,

there have been a third more horses

months of this year than were sold dur-

The greater part of these horses come 
from the North Central States and were 
sold in the Eastern and Southern States. 
to be used on the farms, in the cities, at 
the logging camps and the mines, 

At the wharves, the freight stations,

Williams look a WJ important step 

in the regulation of eaira-eurrieuia ac- 
tivities last week when she unanimously 
voted to group all managerial competi- 
tions into four instead ol live major 

groups, as It was voted todo leal spring. 
These groups ars football, winter sports. 
baseball, aad track, from the football 

competition are selected managers of 
football, soccer, inliainiiial and fresh- 
man football; from the winter sports 
competition, managers of basketball, 
hockey, swimming, freshman hocke\ . 
and freshman basketball; from track 
com pet it tun, managers of track, tennis. 

and freshman track; end from the base- 
hall competition, managers ol baseball. 
golf and freshman baseball. Kach of 
these groups is to have a major managei 
who may also manage any one of the 
Sports in his group which he wi-hes to. 
Other managers of his group are ranked 
as minor managers, and as a rule tbe 
major manager acts on their advice. It 

is expected the competitors will have a 
better chance of being awarded for their 
services under the plan, and that the 

college will also have the best men 
available as managers.

duced is consumed as such. Whole niilK 
is altogether too expensive as food for

It is desirable if dairy animals are to

Greater Weight of Upper Class Has 
Telling Effect. 


Dean Lewis Starts Speaking. 

Tbe sophomore tug-of-war learn 
pulled to victory against the freshmen 
in tbe six-man rope pull Saturday after 
noon between tbe halves of the Tufts 
game. The audience was probably the 
largest that has ever witnessed the 
annual ioter-class rope pull. 

By a quick jump tbe sophomores 
made a gain of two feel at the start and 
maintained their supremacy, by steady 
tugging with their heels dug well into 
the ground, until on the last pistol shot 
they had ten feet of rope on their side 
of the center. 

The freshmen showed their inexperi- 
ence by hesitating at the start and they 
could not get footholds in the sod. 
However the upper classmen ».t> Ibal 
the frosb made a good showing com- 
pared with other years. They were 
overwhelmed more, perhaps, by tbe 
greater weight of their antagonists, 
who exceeded tbem in weight by 
twenty pounds per man, than by their 
lack of skill. 

The sophomore team comprised of 
Leslie C. Anderson of East Bridgewater, 
Charles L. Clark of Newton, Alden H. 
Dooliltleof Northfield, George H. Tbnr- 
low of West Newbury, Robert White of 
llolyoke, Frederick A. Baker of Spring- 
held. John Moriarty of Ware managed 
the sophomore team and Uobert II. 
Woodworth '24 of Newton acted as 

The defeated freshman team was 
made up of Richard C. Keltou, of II ub- 
bardstou, Gustaf A. Johnson of Mt. 
H.-rmoti, Laurence H. Barney of New 
Bedford, Kenneth W. Milligan of Stale 
Line, Walter L. Wirth of Minneapolis, 
Minn,, and Lawrence E. Briggs of Rock- 
land. Tbe team was managed by Mer- 
ril H. Partenbeimer of Greenfield and 
coached by Andrew J. Love 'J* of 



Stockbridge Hall was well tilled Fri- 
day evening at the last mass meeting of 
the football season Comparatively 

few could be counted among the miss- 
ing, and those present displayed good 
spirit and enthusiasm. 

•Red'* Kmery introduced Dean Lewis 
as the lirst speaker. Dean Lewis com- 
mented on the enthusiastic noise which 
typified our cheers and pleaded (off more 
sincerity. lie pointed out howoiir team 
had been gaining steadily: how they 
had played Rensselaer oil" their feet and 
how they bad stood the gall for 
four periods at Williams, "Stan" 
Freeman '14, next spoke, and by 
quoting the experiences of the little 
Nevada team against the University 
of California, explained the su- 
periority of detenafaalloa lo over- 

Prof. Hicks then spoke of tbe great 
number of men that were to come from 
Tufis. Telling how tbe Tufts men ex- 
pected to find a back woods pasture, be 
urged us to show them around and 
prove to tbem that we have the best 
little college in New England. Prof. 
Rice spoke of the significance of the 
Tufts game. He told the team the] 
owed it to themselves to give everything 
they had in every play of the game, 
while the student body owed its siippoit 
to the team. 

Eddie H'ke told us bow he had en- 
joyed the three seaaowe of football which 
he had seen. "Bobble" Barrows and 
Bartlett both helped to arouse enthu- 
siasm by short speeches.

the ball was in the middle ol the field

Of what he was lo do in the next half.

with line plunges mixed with forward 

passes in an attempt to put across 
another tally in the last few minutes ol 
play, hut the Tufts defence strength- 
ened and the attempt was stopped. 

F.teltnan is the hero at Tufts as the 
man who was responsible for the 
Winning points, hut here at Aggie there 
is a certain brilliant haired individual 

who is receiving congratulations from 

those who know him and Wondering

Ihe man who broke down the Tufts 
morale with his slashing off-tackle

idolized ten men to put across the tally

coach who is still wondering why he so 
underestimated the Strength of the

It is estimated that 2500 spectators 
watched the Tufts game Saturday. 
This was without exception the largest 
crowd that has ever turned out to a 
Tufts- Aggie game, either at Amherst or 

at Bledford. 

The Tufts team was hacked up by 
about 400 men. Practically all of them 
name by automobile. In former years 
the Tuftfl men have brought with them 
but a do/en or so supporters. That so 
great a number should have come clear 
across the state from Medford surely 
indicates that a great deal of interest 
centered about this game.

The Dean's Board. 
We bave been ealltng attention con- 
tinually in Iheee colons ns this yea* t<- 

the position of scholarship in the life 
of the average Student. The last dean's 

board baashown graphically the ezlatlng 

conditions. Something is surely wrong 
when over titly-t hrec per cent of Ihe 
student body is low or below in one or 
more subjects. If people come to col- 
lege to study, as they assert, they cer- 
tainly are falling short of their goal 
when SUCh a large proportion of theni 
are in danger of failure. Kvcry year we 
bear the same excuses. It we bave a 

tiist term running seaaoa it is laid to the 

fact that such a season hinders study. 
If we have a second lei in season low 
marks are attributed to Ihe fact that 
the freshmen need the guiding hand of 
the upper classmen. And in either case 
we are given the impression t hat the 
faculty is at fault. The expression that 
"So-and-so has got it in for me" is all 
too common an excuse for low average* 
in studies. 

But diil you evei Stop to think what 
it would be If we did not have a deans 
board 1 Suppose that you did not know 
your Standing until the end of the term. 
How many would fail? We venture the 
guess that the percent age would be a 

great deal larger. The marks at the 

middle of the term act as a stimulus to 
the student body. Anyone finding his 

name posted works harder throughout 

the remainder of the term that he may 
ji;iss in the end. The only difficulty is 
that s .tiie. finding their names include!, 
may become discouraged, or that others. 
finding that they have escaped for the 

time being, may be lulled into a false 
feeling of security thereby. The first 

class is doubtless small. The majority 
ot students, finding thai they are on the 
borderline, will work hauler than ever 

to bring t licit average up. But altogel her 

too many men ol the second class, find- 
ing that they are among the elect whose 

names do not appear, settle down to a 
life of leisure for the lest of the term 
(oily to discover loo late that tbey bave

To tin; F.imtoi; ok tiik Coi.i.koian : 

Yesterday morning I nave a quiz for 
the benefit of any student who was low 
in trade, in Botany. Attendance was 
purely voluntary. In 16 questions I at- 
tempted to test the student's ability to 
interpret a question, to put together 
tacts derived fiotn several sciences and 
lo draw correct conclusions from them, 
to stale bis meaning in language free 
from ambiguity, and to show me 
whether be lias a sense of values and 
knows the di Here nee between import- 
ant and unimportant details. Some 50 
students took the test ; the results are 
of considerable interest. 

For example. I asked the question: 
What is the fundamental difference in 
struct ure between a rod of steel and 
one of wood '.' What is at present the 
smallest known unit of both'.' 

Answer: A rod of steel is somewhat 
bonsogeeaui mass of strands and parti- 
cles. A rod of wood, however, is more 
complex and is made up of many cells, 
rays and vessels. A particle or strand 
is the unit of steel, a cell is the unit of 

Let me analyse this answer: "A rod 
of steel is somewhat bomogetteua." We 
will excuse the spelling of homogene- 
ous, but notice the qualifying word 
"somewhat". It is thrown in without 
regard to any meaning whatever and 
merely to avoid a too definite answer. 
1 doubt whether the man really knows 
the meaning of homogeneous. "A mass 
of strands and particles." This carries 
the meaning that steel is fibrous with 
small granules interspersed among the 
threads. Where did the boy get this 
idea of metallic structure'.' He may 
have a hazy notion of the needle like 
cyrstalllne structure evident in mete- 
oric ir<>n, he may bave seen some article 
in the Scientific American which dealt 
with similar structures In steel. He 

continues: "Wood is made tip of cells, 
rays and vessels." lie knows that the 
cell is the unit of structure of living 
things; he would say if you asked him 
that the lays are cellular and that the 
vessel is also a kind of cell chain. 
Why then does he specify "rays and 
vessels"'.' Why not add the whole 
category of his histological elements 
which enter into wood'.' Note again 
the last sentence. I asked for the 
smallest unit ol both steel and wood. 
Here is a chance for slight misinterpre- 
tation. I meant the electron which is 
at present the smallest known unit 
common to both. He answers thai "a 
particle or strand is the unit of steel. 
A cell is the unit of wood." 

Here is an example from another 

Question: What is the chemical com- 
pound of which paper is composed '.* 

Answer: "The chief chemical com- 
pound is carbon." 

Here it may be noted that the an- 
swer makes no reference to paper. As 
it stands it asserts that carbon is the 
chief chemical compound — presumably 
in Ihe universe. What shall we say 
furth e r mo re, Of a boy after two terms 
of chemistry calls carbon a chemical 
Compound? This is no reflection on 
the chemistry department. Ask 75 
percent Of my students next year how 
the embryo arises in a seed ami they 
cannot tell. 

Here is another example from the 
same paper; it answers the question — 
Why is Kugleiia (a one-celled plant) 
comparable to Robinson Crusoe rather 
than to vourself living at M. A. C. 
Note first that I had tried to explain 
this point in class; it involves the prin- 
ciple of division of labor. The single 
cell does everything for itself, the mul- 
ticellular plant delegates special func- 
tions to special cells. Robison, an iso- 
lated individual, differs in a similar 
manner from the student who is a unit 
in a social group. Here is the answer: 
"Bobinson Crusoe was guided by the 
stars and the light at hand. He was 
out ou a desert away from human be- 
ings and as a result was extremely 
sensitive. We at M. A. C. accustomed 
to everything and therefore not so 
sensitive. '' 

Now 1 know the half idea behind (he 
student's mind. We had studied Ku- 
gleiia in its reactions to light. A misty 
memory of this is struggling in that 
student's mind. He asks himself how 
in the world would Crusoe have any- 
thing to do witii light. The word light 
suggests stars; so he puts down stars, 
and to cover any other luminous bodies 
adds "the light at hand". Please note 
all absence in his mind of the relative 
importance of light giving bodies; stars 
are as important to him to him as sun 
or moon. Crusoe's island is called a 
"desert". The phrase "desert island" 
is sometimes used for Crusoe's delec- 
table paradise but I wager our student 
had the idea of sandy wastes in bis 
mind (if indeed he had any idea at all). 
Crusoe is away from human beings and 
is theiefore "sensitive". There is no 
staled reason why men develop special 
sensitivity in "deserts". The last sent- 
ence lacks a verb, though with the im- 
plication that the students at M. A. C. 
are extremely "insensitive" I am in 

I take one more example from an- 
other paper. I ank: Why should the 
student Of Plant Ecology be well 
trained in Morphology, Physiology and 
Geology t Here are four sciences men- 
tioned by name and in practically every 
test for four months I asked foi defini- 
tions of same of these terms, warning 



IIK man who thinks he is saving money by buying a suit or overcoat at a 

low price, overlooks that somebody saved it before he did ! Any clothes 

below 1IICKKY-FKKKMAN prices are below HICKKY-FKKKMAN quality. 


the students again and again that I 
should ask for them until they were 
mastered. Here follows the answer lo 
the question : 

"If a person doesn't understand Ihe 
structure, both outer and inner, of 
plants and their natural features he 
couldn't tell what conditions they are 
best adapted to. Even if he were to 
read out of a text-book the kinds of 
surroundings certain plants lived in 
without knowing all ihe features of the 
plants named, he would not be able 10 
tell in what kinds of surroundings an- 
other list of plants lived." 

The answer begins with promise - 
structure— both outer and inner", a 
good definition of morphology though j 
not stated as such. Then appears the 
slovenly streak, "and their natural fea- 
tures" is added. What does it mean.' 
lie has no idea. The second sentence j 
is as vague as ihe idea struggling for 
expression. No where has be defined 
physiology (the science of function) or 
. ology (science of the earth). No- 
where has he clearly slated that slruc- 
nire and I unci ion go band in hand and 
that they are both in harmony with 
physical surroundings. 

Such are a few samples of the an- 
swers which I receive every lime I give 
a quiz, and nol on a few papers bill to 
a greater or lesser degree from 75 per 
rent of the class. Next year the ma- 
jority of these men will enter the 
Junior class. Juniors and Seniors do 
not fail— they are under the elective 
tern. These "students" will gradu- 
wilh the degree of Bachelor of 

I have been told that it 's useless to 
point out these things, that any other 
tern would have the same evils, that 
these boys, to be sure, will not gel an 
education but thai perhaps they will 
I little belter off when they leave 
,. liege than when I hey entered; that 
college degrees mean little anyhow and 
even if our degree at M. A. C. is 
Bg prestige it is of small moment. 
I am assured that no man ever does 
anything till he is ready and there is 
e use in trying to force him along 
path of evolution; and finally that 
n forms ought to begin at home and 
pretty nearly end there. With all ot 
which, enriously enough, I agree. Here 
are some of the paradoxes of life. We 
the good but we are powerless he- 
tors the heavy inertia of mankind, 
goal of a dispassionate serenity is, 
! wever, hard to attain, attain, and I 
-appose so long as one is more or less 
i fool one will attempt to reform the 
n .rid. Hence I put forword a few 
■Ye might institute sub-Fresnman 
coureasla reading, writing, arithmetic 
language study, in which we 
• ild drill students word by word, 
ence by sentence, thought by 
i night, till they came to regard ob- 
- i;y as a device of the devil to lead 
a to hell (and I'm not so certain but 
it does lead right in that direction). 
V\. could divide our Freshmen and 
8 bonsorea into two groups and adapt 
nock to their respective levels ot 
iligence. We could reduce credit 

hours lo 12 pet term with full time 
spent on Ihe subjects till tbey were 
mastered. We could have two degrees 
at the college, one for men who could 
master the sciences and humanities, 
the other for those who could not. 

All the recent agitation over volun- 
tary attendance at classes, teacher's 
meetings to discuss pedagogy, changes 
changes in curricula, adjustments in 

sehedales are of trilling Importunes be- 
fore Ibis primal "muddle and mess." 

1 can but open the question lo discus- 
sion, I cannot say what should be 
done. When sutticient desire for change 

is developed among, faculty, alumni 
and students, then the desire may pass 
over into active will. 

No one is to be blamed or criticized 
for Ihe present conditions. Heredity, 
lack of proper parental and school 
supervision, inferior teachers prepared 
in inferior schools, unwise associates in 
and out of college, inability to maintain 
our entrance standards' confusion of 
educational issues, lack of motivating 
power-all these and many other things 
play a part. 

With our present divergence of 
opinions as to the propel work of our 

college I cannot that any specific system 
will gain support. In searching for a 
set of educal ioiitil principles broad 
enough lo underlie all systems I have 
chanced on Dr. Mctk lejoh n's seven 
points on which he bases his opinion as 
to whether a boy is lit led to proceed 
with college work after the Sophomore

which we Blffbl nieasiire students and 

faculty alike. 


To i hi; EVITOB <>i- riii. Coi.i.ii.i an : 

As 1 see it there are two of <rit 
u-isin -destructive and construclife. 
I'ln- lirst is popularly known as "erab- 
l.iim" and seems to he pretty much in- 
dulged in on this ramplis It dOMgOOd 
neither to the "erabber" nor the one 
who is 'crabbed."' The »«0OBd is I very 
effective weapon when used correctly-- 
hut is seldom used here. It seems as 
t boBg fa it •* ,inu ' lo accumilhile and 
present here some of the ideas 1 have 
beard and tin. unlit over in the four 
years or more that 1 have been in this 
Collage. I UU» going to trj and present 
them as eonstruclivc criticism of what I 
helieve to be the faults within this in- 
stitution. With all tbe talk that is 
going OO someone must he the "goal" 
and brtag these tblagSOUl in the open. 
We hear a good deal abOBl the'M. 
A. < . man" these .lays. I wonder what 

he is Bfaen h«- graduates? I a«i afraid 

he is llie Wl A. C. man" — not an indi- 
vidual hut a type, I product of an insti- 
tution just as a lord car is a product of 
the Ford factories. A tllOBg statement .' 
l,t't us sec. looking at the situation as 
calmly ami disinterestedly as possible. 
I low many eon rses are I here on this 
campus which teach a man to think, 
which nive him that which a siicccsslul 
College must uive Its men - individual- 
ity, ahilty to reason, and not to be 
(he product of some other person's 

thinking t 

In many classes on this campus a 

qneettoa of an objection will arise. 

What it often the answer on the part of 
the instructor? Something like this, 
•[have no time lo discuss here: ymi 
must accept it because so-and-so M|l it 
it is so." Then thai course, of Ike .->> s- 
tem on which it operates, is a failure. 
Who were and are and will be the 
«real men of history t Those who were 
and are and shall be individuals, t he 
thinkers, those for whom a mere state- 
ment of a fact is not sttltieient. Most 
thing! that are done here arc done 
simply because they always have been 
done so-we are in a rut, and it is time 
to Jjet out of it . 

I am afraid Dr. Albeit Parker Fitch 
would liml many of his "little dump- 
lings Of men and women" here. 

Now a second point. 1 claim that 
men are turned out from I his college 
who are not up to a collegiate standard. 
The degree of Bachelor of Science 
should stand for somet hint- : the men 

who bold that degree should measure 

up to a single standard- he should be 
of the type who could be called a col- 
lege man anywhere. If he cannot get a 
certain amount of culture along with 
hiH agriculture should be get his de- 
gree'.' U la a question, end one which 
has a certain hearing on the solution of 
the great future problem of overcrowd- 
ing in Colleges. And incidentally it 
has been suggested often that low colle- 
i-iate standard! bate a definite bearing 

on the fact that many splendid men do 
not come here, that we lose many good 

men, and that our present freshman 
class is so small. 

Well then, am I right in my conten- 
tions! Are we or are we not turning 

out individuals'.' Ar n standards as 

high as they should be'.' All probably 
do not ague with me: if not how about 

some discussion.' Let us hear s e- 

thing beside sieitotyped accounts ol 

campus events, and gossip, eadetab* 

bing about cobwebby courses. 

Let us sec if (here is some individual- 
ity and some thinking on t he cam pus. 

Prove that I am wrong in what l have 

Am I a radical? I say no. Bui I do 

plead guilty to being a liberal.

Taking aa 1 1 i .-* snbjeol "Tba * 'ai I to 
Bervlce", tbe Ree. ¥r, John k. Rjrnn in 
his sermon at obapel last bnnday morn. 
inn analysed the three types nf living 
found in the world today and showed 

thai the life liiven to tbe seiviie ol * - » » « I 

is the only life worth while. Ft. Ityan, 

who at present is Director ot the Social 

Action Department Ot the National 

Catholic Welfare Connell, rVaabington, 

D. r., took Ins text from Luke 13:15: 

"\ man's life eoiisistelh not in the 

abundance of things which he pos- 
HeHtset h.'' 
The speaker gave aa tbe three types 

of life: The searih tor material enjoy- 
ment : disintelesteil service to one's fel- 
low men: and conscious cooperat ion 

wiih Qod. In dlacuasing tbe Brat ol 

these be saiil, "To increase mil income 
has liecoineoiil conslanl aim ami desire. 
The vast majority look at life from the 
view-point of quantity rathe* than qua- 
lity. The foundation of tbe powei to 

do is the power to do without." After 

enumerating some of tbe ways in which 
large sums of money are ipeal today la 
entering to the desires of tbe body, be 

said, "Only a brief analysis is necessaiy 
lo show this I henry of life to he false. 

deadening, delusive.' 

He next turned to t he innumerable 
opportunities for disinterested service. 

The situations which Kr. U van consid- 
ers as most necessary to be reformed 
are the Intolerable conditions of lile and 
labor among thousands ofooi people, 
ihe nnequnl distribution of wealth, and 
the fact that so small a portion ol the 
Workers has a part in the ownership ol 

Industry. This last c lition pan not, 

in his opinion, continue permanently. 

"The meana for carrying out these re- 

lorms'*, he said, ''are neither few not 
simple, t hey must come from legislation, 
from churches, from individuals. There 
is work for all and opportunity foi all." 

in considering cooperation with God, 
he said that ibtoineludeadlalntereeted

A Review of ihe Seven Games 
Played This Year. 

With Ihe 1888 Football season behind, 
il is lilting that a little space be devoted 
to a resume ol the games, that the 
work of the " Little Creen 'Team " may 

be better appreciated. The team this 
year led by Captain Salman, played 

every minnle of every game, and theiv (owe! siibst il ut ions made this year 
than in several yeais past, due partly to 
the lack of serious injuiies to Ihe 
players, and partly to t be fad I hat at 
all limes each man in the game was lin- 
ing his job to the best of his ability. 
II was said of last year's team that they 
were too well colldil ioiied , but this 
year the men were caielully trained to 
be always up to par, ami their work 
showed this clearly . 

'The season opened with the game 
against Itensselaei Polylech OB Alumni 
Field. R P. L wiiH victorious by the 
score of D-7. but it was evident Horn the 

Hart thai both t e auw wera oa ea eaual 

beslt, and Kensselaer's two point mar- 
gin which was Ihe result of il safety 

when Barrows was tackled behind hit 

own goal line after fumbling. This 
was surely a break which went lo the 
visitors, hut it must be thought thai 
the opposing players were not playing 

alert I ball. Although ihe game 

was not a victory for Agglt II helped 
bring out ceilain Haws in the team 
which were soon remedied lor Inline

The Delta l'hi Alpha live went down 

to defeat before the strong Sigma l'hi 

Fpsilon team. Jensen played a tine 
brand of basketball for the winners. 
Samuels showed up well for the losers. 
The score at the end of the first half 
was 18 to 1 in favor of Sigma l'hi 
B pal Ion. 

The second game of the season was 
played a( B«wiston, Me., against the 
Bates eleven. Bates barely nosed out a 
victory in this fray by the close margin 
of one point, the linal score standing 
7-ti. Here again the Aggie l«M» proved 
itself on a par wit h its opponents, and 
a failure to kick a goal after touchdown 
cost us theiiaine. As in the first game of 
the season it was the altertness of the 
opponents which won the game. At 
Bates I he winning touchdown was made 
by Bowe, I tleet end who picked up 
the ball after it bad hit an Aggie player 
on a punt, and Boding practically a 
clear held. carried the ball over. Aggie's 
touchdown was the result of straight 
line bucks and end runs in which t lie 
ball was rushed over i»() yards. 

Nearly everyone had a chance to see 
the Amherst game and can awpreciate 
the light that the Farmers put up 
agalnal their old rivals. It was per- 
haps more in this game than in any 
other where the words of Stan Freeborn 
were found to be so true, in substance, 
that the "Little Green Team" is en- 
dowed with the proper tight, the old 
Never-say-die spirit but tney bad not

found a team much their superior on 
the field. The visitor* were outplayed 
but related lO give op trying and went 
down to a "25-0 defeat only after putting 
1 heir best into their | laying. 

Stevens was the .second team nl I In- 
season to fall before the Farmers' on 
slaught and was easily defeated 86-t, 
on Alumni Field. Acgie was not put 
to her best, and after t lie liist halt ii 
was only a question how large :• score 
could be run up. Stevens was able to 
score with the help of line plunges and 
forward passes, both teams resorting to 

an overhead essnlt frequent 1 jr. 

To cap the climax of a not too smees- 
fill season and leave a good taste in 
1 In- mouths of the student body the 
Farmers held the Tufts eleven to a 10-7 
victory. Tufts was over-conlident and 
easy-going, but before the linal whistle 
they had learned to respect the Fight- 
ing Fanners, and to admiie their pluck 
in playing the game. Although it 
would have been pleasant to have won 
the game, the home lean proved iisell 
fully as capable eleven as the .(umbos, 
and a drop kick hy a certain Mr. Kiel- 
man was the only thing that saved the 
day for Tufts, giving them a three point 
lead whirh they were able to maintain 
until the end only by sending '" •?•-«-!•- 
men and by resorting to every trick in 

ihe baa*, to keep the Maroon and White 
players from scoring a second ume. 

As for the Start of the season, there 
were eleven men who played practically 
the entire season and in rverj game, 
who io nearly every case whipped (hell 
man. and it was this nidi vidual coopeia- 
lion which was so pronounced through- 
out the season, towards the end especi- 
ally. As foi Individual stars, Sullivan 
proved himself a speedy and ground- 
gaining back and lure through tackle 
time and again for substantial gains. 
There was another man in the Aggie 
back field who probably did not gain 

10 yards t he entile oca sou, the principle 

reason being that he only carried the 

hall a very few time-, during the entire 

season. Guetafeoa is a hard bitting, 

sure tackling man. who stopped Btanj 
long runs of our opponents, lie was in 
the game to tackle, and tackle he did. 

Both Cormier and Moberg displayed 
excellent ability to run the team in t he 
quarterback position and are sine bets 
for next year's pilots. Captoln Salman 
played a steady and consistent game at 
end, and his speed in running down 
punts was especially noticeable In evert 
game. The rest of the team could 
easily be picked for their individual 
ability but lack of space permits us to 
print only those whose particularly 
brilliant plays this season were Instru-

ions and laud the man who speaks lor

which must receive a definite answer. 

The condition ot mob government is al- 
together too prevalent in the average 
America college. Thank God it ii not 

as had here as il miyht be I But we 
can make il even better If we set our- 
selves to it. Kven as handmade pieces 
of art arc more valuable than those

valuable than machine made puppets. 

The Student Forum 

The next issue oi the Collegian 
will be on December 12. 

Be Yourself. 
One ot the thing! which every col- 
lege man should have is personality. 
Colleges at present lend too much to 
turn out their graduates in a set mould. 

There is too little variation among lac 

students. Vet personality is I he great- 
est asset which any man can have. 
Uniformity means mediocrity. Person- 
ality at least sneonrages superiority. 

Vel the Student body frowns on any 
exhibition of personality. The man 
who wishes the make to most of his time 
while st college and therefore applies 

himself diligently to his books Issneer- 
Ingly spoken of as a ''bookworm", lie 

is made to feel himself an outcast, lit- 
is looked down upon as being different. 

The man who prefers a Saturday af- 
ternoon walk lo a football name is de- 
cried as one having no college spirit. 
The mere fact that his tastes differ from 
those of the majority makes him the 

object of ridicule and ostracism, 

The man who had rather speed his 

time trying oat for the glee club than 
practicing football is looked upon as 

being idiosyncratic and mentally defici- 
ent, Be is cither pitied or Ignored). 

Now the question is, shall we en- 
deavor to set a standard for the student 
body and make everyone conform 
thereto or shall we allow each man to 
follow his own natural bent? Or shall 
we prescribe certain activities and leave 

others to the Inclination of the Indi- 
vidual? It seems lo us (hat the latter 
course is probably the most meritori- 
ous. There are some things which 
every student should do whether he 
wishes or no. lie should doubtless gel 
a minimum amount of exercise every 
day. He should doubtless be made to 
read certain masterpieces of literature. 
Hut to prescribe definite amounts of 
anything for the entire student body is 
useless and may be harmful. One man 
needs one tblnp while another needs 

something entirely different. The Indi- 
viduality oi the eingle etndent must be 
the deciding factor.

Inder classmen, especially Freshmen, 
have always been the target for criti- 
cism In regard lo their aeholaatlc attain- 
ments and endeavors. Very especially 
the criticism is directed not to. but at 
i hem. There is of course a difference 
between being talked to and talked al ; 
Freshmen are consistently talked at; 
moreover, criticized. Chiefly, they are 
told that their work is light in compari- 
son to that of previous years, always 
that, regardless of the evidence of the 
schedule room to the contrary. 

The classes of 1998 and 1027 have 
much thesams sort of schedules. 1991 

has several courses l hat 1998 bad not, 

but 1990 had several courses that Xl has 

not. Practically, the schedules balance. 

11(20 has always held that ils courses 
were too hard local i y sat is! act orily. The 
,!;iss hours themselves were not unrea- 
sonable, but the preparation required 

for certain courses was decidedly dispro- 
portionate to their value. 1991 has I lie 
same complaint. 

A re t he courses loo hard '.' No, not in 
themselves. Hut the amount of time 
that is wasted in the preparation and 
recitation ol certain courses is appalling 
when considered in the aggregate, The 
value of hard study in mind training Is 
nnquestloned, but if there is any value 

iu learning pages of assorted statistics, 

which are parroted in a contused mess 

on an examination papers or in a recita- 
tion, that value is beyond the compre- 
hension of anyone SXCept a dognatlc in- 
structor. No, the work is not too hard, 
it is loo futile. If the object of educa- 
tion at M. A. C is to turn out a numbci 
of well tilled encyclopedias, well and 
good. We are on our way. Hut if. on 
the other hand, the object of education 
is to train men to think, there are few 
courses which offer constructive train- 
ing. Dictionaries may be bought Cheap- 
ly,— is it necessary that men and wo- 
men coming to It. a. c, should be pre- 
pared i" act as poor substitutes? 

"No. 1". 

Why can'i we approach our studies 
from a different angle and appreciate 
what they really mean and not lay too 
much stress upon those facts which are 
only the result of an underlying princi- 
ple '.' It Blight be well to try il. it 
would be a change ;>t least. 

"No. 2". 

The recent agitation that has Sprang 
up on the campus over our course of 
study seems to me entirely futile. Up- 
perclassmen who are trying lo change 
conditions will never gel any benefits 
even if they could by I heir wordy efforts 
make any impression. Lower classmen 
cannot as yet have formed any compre- 
hensive ideas on such subjects as the 
curriculum, the method of teaching, 
and the relative value of vocational and 
liberal education. 

We see therefore that I hose men who 
are capable of deciding what they want 
will never derive any benefit Iron, a 
change, and why should they worry 
about the college or future students 

here '.' 

A college degree is obtainable here 
that is as good as any B. Be. degree in 
the country, and will mean just as much 
to the man as any college degree. If 
men arc disalislied with Aggie, why do 
they come bete, and why do they stay P

In many of the major courses on ibis 
campus there seems to be a tendency 
toward vocationalism. Many of our 
courses contain too many facts and too 

t.w fundamentals. The object of a col-

the student to think. We have many- 
diet i.. nanus, encycloped'as and other 
books of reference from which to draw

It has been stated by many that a stu- 
dent carries too many subjects at one 
time. This is quite true. Why not 
adopt the system followed in such col- 
leges as Oxford and Cambridge? These 
institutions turn out the finest educated 
men in the world and we are only too 
ready to admit it. so why not follow 
their system and try to stimulate rea- 
soning and discussion '.' They carry 
fewer subjects than we in the American 
colleges hut they go into I hem more in-

On Learning— A Defense of Mr. 

Most of what passes for learning is a 
kind of pitiful affectation. The stu- 
dent says,"l have had" Latin or chem- 
istry, or "I took" science or literature. 
All is safely in the past as if it were an 
attack of pleurisy. 

On the other hand when one of Mr. 
Wells' hundred of thousands of readers 
has finished his Outline of History be 
does not say, "I have had history" and 
— in his heart— "1 hope never to have it 
again." And why? Hecause Mr. 
Wells manages to humanize the past of 
mankind. He may make mistakes, 
from the standpoint of the special stu- 
dent; he may make rash conjectures 
and display personal preferences in 
commenting on Caesar or Napoleon, 
but people who had never realized the 
general way in which man came about. 
or how writing originated; had never 
thought of (iautama, the Huddha, or 
the origin of the Hible, feel, as tbey 
read, something really happening in 
them, and with the new knowledge 
things never seem to them again as 
they seemed before. This constitutes 
learning. The history teacher often 
SUSpeetl that the students are by no 
means honestly convinced that any of 
the people mentioned in the text book 
ever lived, that the council of Nicaea 
ever occurred, or that Lady .Jane (Jrey's 
girlish head was ever cut off.

then he has done his work. 



It is of interest to note the strong at 
lenlion which is being directed by the 
Land Grant colleges to the problem ol 
courses of study and methods of teach- 
ing. At the recent annual meeting of 
the Association of Land Crant colleges 
there was more discussion on these 
questions than at any meeting for the 
past twenty yeais. Il is evident that 
presidents, deans, and faculties are not 
satisfied with their courses. Possibly 
the enormous increase in enrollment al 
most of these institutions has helped 
bring the issue lo ahead. A mob of 
students are going to college. Are 
they getting all tbey ought to out of it '.' 

The basic question iu all these discus- 
sions is this: What is Ihe purpose ot a 
college? What can he accomplished 
in a four year course of study'.' What 
is the aim of the course? 

The present drift, especially in this 
land-grani group of colleges, is towards 
a course which will train for life work, 
hut not ii) a narrow way. There is a 
-eneral feeling that the student should 
be trained to serve society, and at Ihe 
-ame time get his own largest growth 
out of bis work. 

Another question heard continually 
at this meeting was raised in an at- 
lempt to get at the requirements for 

tilling agricultural positions. What 
do agricultural workers need any- 
way? And, knowing these vocational 
demands, how can the curriculum he 
adapted to meet them?

The Massachusetts Collegian, Wednesday, November 28, 1923. 



Mr. Samuel O. I maun Telia of Re- 
cent Advances Made in Southern 

Mr. Samuel <;. [nman, <>f New fork 
Clljr, executive secretary of the Com- 
mltteeon Cooperation In Latin America. 
gave a very Interesting lecture al aa- 
sciiii>i\ laat Thursday afternoon. 

"When President Roosevelt ret anted 
from li ik trip i<» South America," laid 
the speaker, "he said that just as the 
inosi remarkable developments of the 

19th century look place in North Amer- 
ica, ho the most remarkable develop- 
ments of the Will eeniui y are to take 
place la South America." 

Mr. Inman presented some startling 
facts to prove his point. There is an 
important institution at Rio de .laniero 

which is training the young people in 

advanced agriculture. At this point he 
sidetracked to point onl the opportunity 
for the graduate* Of If. A. <J. and simi- 
lar institutions at this and similar col- 
leges in other parts of South America. 
.South Americans commonly conceive of 

uh as "yreal selfish dollar -chasers. 1 ' 
The largest stretch of undeveloed fer 
tile land in the world is the strip of 
land from Mexico to the Straits of 
Magellan. The common conception 
that this land is no place for a white 
man is untenable, since man has been 
aide to control insects SO effectively, be- 
cause he has found remedies and pre- 
ventitives for the numerous diseases. 

and because conditions of traveling and 

communication have been improved to 
such an extent . As an example of the 
latter he said that formerly by a com- 
bination of steamboat and train it took 

tea days to gal to Bogota, the capital of 

Columbia, from lbs nearest seaport. 

Now the trip can be made by air-plane 

in a few hours. The population of the 
world is still increasing. According to 
Mr. Inman, the overcrowded portions 
of the world are going to seek Latin 
America. Therefore, we may expect de- 
velopments there.

movement is ttie feminist movement. 
Women in the countries of Latin 
America have been as much looked 
down on as those of savage tribes. 
There is a college la (bile in which 

there are one thousand young women.

South America are not the destined 
aristocrats, as in former times, but i he

night elasses for the laboring people, a 

fact which shows that the people are 

developing very rapidly fi the South

our minds, a lavage of the lowest level.

The class of "26, which made so tine a 
record of scholarship last year, has met 
the first Dean's Saturday of Us sopho- 
more year and the ihowlng has been 

rather disappointing. Apparently the 

sophomores have failed to yet as good a 

start this year as they had last. 

Several s( mleiits have suggested lhal 
the rushing season makes its heaviest 
draft upon I he time of the sophomores. 

Does this prevent them getting a good 

start in physics and botany, the subjects 
which are so ditlicull for most students '.' 
Perhaps an early start in these courses 
is of great importance in getting Ibroogh 
the turn peacefully. 

Athletics and academic activities are 
being more generally participated in by 
underclassmen than ever before. This 
is largely due to the attempt to give 
college credit for extia curriculum ac- 
tivities up to live hours a week, out ol a 

maximum of 50 credit hours allowed 

each student. In the future live hours 
of Mich work will probably be required, 

hut at present it is voluntary, is it pos- 
sible that the heavy enrollment in activ- 
ities is lowering scholarship'.' 

In considering Aggie scholarship one 
must remember that an unusually large 

number of our student a are working 
their way through. Probably more 
boya are putting in longer hours of 
work ami at the same time being held 
to a fuller seheduleof studies than la 
most other colleges. Unlike many In- 
stitutions in which the sell supporting 
man may have live or six years to com- 
plete his course, all our students must 
"•_:<> through the mill" In four years. 
Bow can a boy who is Working 2.") Mi 
hours • week possibly at hard manual 
labor, maintain a scholarship level 
in his ."ill weekly credit hours.' 

Our studesta are as eerious aa in any 
American undergraduate school, prob- 
ably. They study just as hard, but 
there is a certain unevenness of inter- 
est , and therefore effort, as directed 
towards our c uuses, because so many of 
the 10 have a vocatioualslant. It ISCjUitS 
natural that a man should give his best 
attention lo that part ol his course 
which is supposedly aimed lo prepare 
him directly for the future. It is also 
natural that he neglects the mathemat- 
ics and English and other courses which 
are not directly vocational, when the) 
conflict With the others. This gives us 
a problem not found iii non-vocational 
Collages, where there is quite likely lo 
be a uniform lack of zest for study. 

( unitary, perhaps, to student opinion, 
the scholarship problem is how to main- 
tain high standards in the last two 
years, not the first two. How can voca- 
tional courses be held to a high grade 
of effort and results? That is one of 
the main c|uestions.

which was the best one-act play sub- 
mitted in the contest conducted by the 
Koister Doislers last spring, It is a 
liiirlesque of the popular plays dealing 
with the Soman tie period. The difli- 

culties which the Duke experiences in 
solving his dileina furnish a large 
amount of material for laughter. Hilda

protege. A. K. Thompson, as the Duke,

Mr. Samuel G. Inman Tells of Re- 
cent Advances Made in Southern 

Mr. Samuel O. Inm;iu, of New fork 

city, executive secretary of Ibe Com- 
mittee on Cooperation in Latin America. 
nave a very Interesting lecture at as- 
sembly last Thursday afternoon. 

"When President Roosevelt returned 

from liis trip lo South America.' - said 
the speaker, "lie said tliatjusl as the 

most remarkable development! of i ii «■ 

HHIi century took place In North Amer- 
ica, so the most remarkable develop- 
ments of the 2<m ti century are tu take 

place in South America.*' 

Mr. Inman presented some Startling 
fads to prove his point. There is an 
important institution at IJio de .lanicro 

which is tralalag Ike young people in 

advanced agriculture. At this point he 
sidetracked to point out t he opport unity 
for the graduates of M. A. C. and simi- 
lar institutions at this and similar col- 
leges la otker parts of South America. 
South Americans commonly conceive of 
us as "ureal selfish dollar-chasers." 
The largest stretch of node vetoed lei 
tile land in the world is the strip of 
laud fiom Mexico to the Straits of 
Mat-ellan. The common conception 
that this laud is no place foi a white 
man is untenable, since man has been 
able to control insects so ellective'v, be 
caune hi has found remedies snd pre 
ventitives for the numerous discuses, 

ami because conditions of traveling and 

communication have been improved to 
such an extent. As an example of the 
latter he said that formerly by a com 
blaatloa of steamboat and train it took 
ten days to get to Bogota, ibe capital of 
Columbia, from the nearest seaport. 
Now the trip can be made Uj air-plane 
in a few hours. The population of the 
world is still Increasing. According to 
Mr Inman, the overcrowded portions 
of the world ate uniiiy [y seek Latin 
America. Therefore, we may expect de- 
velopments there. 

There are social Iranformations which 
should be noted also. Labor is coming 
to its own Ibrougb education. There have 
been labor Uprisings in South America 
so thai labor is a factor to be considered 
in South America as well as in North 
America. President ObregOB Of Mexico 
has tried to start a movement to do 
away with large estates which produce 
so much peonage. Another important 
movement is the feminist movement. 
Women in the countries of Latin 
America have been as much looked 
down on as those of savage tribes. 
There is a college in Chile in which 
I here ate one thousand young women. 
The students in all the universities of 
South America are not the destined 
aristocrats, as in former times, but ihe 
middle class of younfl people. At pres- 
ent some of the students ale holding 
nlgbl classes for the laboring people, a 
but which shows that the people are 
developing very rapidly from the South 

American that we commonly picture in 

our minds, a savage of the lowest level. 

Mi. Inman said in closing: "1 take 

ureal pleasure in inviting you to Ihe 

land of tke south, be brother Ameri- 
cans, Let us say wild one of the great 
leaders of Argentine "Not America for 
the American, America for humanity!"

delivered a short talk from Station 
Wis/, broadcasting station oi the West- 

Ingbouse Electric company at Spring- 
field, at 7-4H Tuesday evening Nov. 27. 


The class of "20, which made so fine a 
record of scholarship last year, has met 
I he first Dean's Saturday of its sopho- 
more year and the showing has been 
rather disappointing. Apparently the 
■opbomoKS have failed to get as good a 
start this year as I bey bad last. 

Several students bave suggssted that 

the rushing season makes its hea\iest 
draft upon the time ot Ihe sophomores. 
Does this prevent t hem gelling a good 
start in physics and botany . the subjects 
which are so dttlicult for most students'.' 
Perhaps tin early start in these courses 
is of great imports nee in getting through 
the turn peacefully. 

Athletics anil academic activities are 
being more generally participated in by 
underclassmen than ever before. This 
is largely due to the attempt to give 

college credit for extra curriculum ac- 
tivities up to live hours a week, out ol a 
maximum of 5(1 credit hours allowed 
each student. In the future live hours 
of such work will probably be required, 
but at present it is voluntary . Is it pos- 
sible that the heavy enrollment in activ- 
ities is lowering scholarship '.'

In considering AgglC scholarship one 
must remember that an unusually large 
number of our students are working 
their way through. Probably more 
boys are putting in longer hours of 
wnu and at the same lime being held 
lo a fuller schedule of studies than in 
most other colleges. Unlike many in- 
stil iiiions in w hich the self supporting 
man may have live or six years to com- 
plete his course, all our suidents must 
"g<» through the mill*' in four yeais.

Our students are ss serious ai la any 
American undergraduate school, prob- 
ably. They study just as bird. Hut 
l here is a certain nnevennesh of inter- 
est, ami therefore effort, as directed 
towards our c iinses, because so many of 
them have a vocational slant. It is quite 
natural that a man should give bis best 
attention to that part of his course 
which is supposedly aimed to prepare 
him directly for the future. It is also 
natural thai he neglects the mat hemat- 
ics and English and other courses which 
are not directly vocational, when they 
conflict with Ibe others. This gives us 
a problem not found in non-vocal ional 
colleges, where there is (|iiite likely to 
be a uniform lack of zest for study. 

( ontrary, perhaps, to student opinion, 
the scholarship problem is how to main- 
tain bigfa standards in the last two 
years, not the first two. How can voca- 
tional courses be held to a high grade 
of effort and results'." That is one of 
the main queatloOS.

log all done. "There will be three 
points in which the church of the fu- 
ture will differ from the old church," 
he said. 'The new church of the fu- 
ture will stand squarely, frankly and 

honestly for common sense in religion. 

The old idea has been that morality 

and stupidity b a ve gone together. The 

new church will tell its yoaag people 
I to learn all they can and ask such <|iies- 
tions as they will about religion. If 
our religion cannot stand every test 
that history or science or sociology or 
anything else makes upon it, then 
there's a catch in il somewhere audi 
propose that WO sciap it. The church 
of the future will recognize the new re- 
lationship between the liberal churches 
of the United Mates. New forms have 
been working to draw the liberal 
churches together, and the liherals in 
(he Christian church learned a long 
time ago to surmount the silly barriers 
of deiioininationalism. The church of 
(he future will also have anew inter- 
pretation of God and His relation to us. 
Then is a new thought of God— thai 
God's work on earth is not yet done and 
we are working with him to build the 
world. We are to work with him for 
the uplifting of humanity." 

Dr. Gilkey challenged the studenls to 
enter into the new order of things, and 
Mid, "The church of the future has the 
greatest chance in history, and it is 
you young people, you college men and 
women, to whom we who are lighting

to come into being."

Choice of a Career 

From the Yale News 


Someone, probably an insurance 
agent, was quoted recently as saying 
that from the mass of one hundred 
college graduates one individual only 
rose to the Polo and butler class, peril- 
ously near the top of the financial lad- 
der. Five others became comfortably 
off and found themselves after twenty 
years at the small yacht and chauffeur 
stage. The other ninety-four presum- 
ably congregate in the great section of 
the American people who drive their 
own Buicks to the golf club. In other 
words, dreaming about being a rich 
man is one thing, and making the grade 
is "something else again." 

Yet the ninety-four presumably work 
just as hard as the sumptuous six. Their 
business is the axis on which a small 
and uninteresting world revolves. They 
have become devotees of the dollar 
and when that fickle deity deserts, have 
nowhere else to turn. Jammed in a 
dull, straight rut of business they can 
never leave the road and jump the fence 
into finer fields of life. This, then, is 
the portion of ninety-four men out of 
every hundred now on the campus. 

The answer to the problem lies in 
the proper choice of a career. 

Between now and Commencement 
we shall have something to offer on 
the subject of "Careers." Watch for 
the space with the Famous Signature.

Large Squad Reporting for Early 



Dr. Samuel A. Eliot Makes This 

Statement in Sunday Chapel 


Tbe hoc key team which will repre- 
sent Aggie on the ice (his winter is fast 
round i nt; into shape for one of the li ant- 
es schedules that the aggregation has 
undertaken for several years. The 
squad has heen out over a week now, 
the time being spent principally in goal 
shooting in the Drill Hall, and some 
cross country work. The past few days 
the men have been playing tag football 
to improve their wind and to get them 
into condition. 

Tbe outlook for the coming season is 
excellent, and Coach (iordon is verv op- 
timistic about the showing which his 
men will make when they run up 
against such teams as Vale, West Point, 
Williams and Amherst. The game this 
year with Yale will be tbe rubber for 
tbe best two out of three, each team 
having won one game apiece in tbe past 
two years. It is hoped that the team 
will repeat its victory of last year over 
West Point making it three straight for 

The squad thus far consistsof 3D men, 
all of whom give promise of good mate- 
rial. With a nucleus of four letter men 
from last year Coach Gordon expects to 
build up an aggregation (bat will be 
worthy to represent the name of Aggie. 
Captain Goldsmith, Nicoll, Tewbill and 
Lamb all won their spurs on tbe team 
last year, and tilling in with such prom- 
ising men as Moberg, M. White and 
Cormier, who all did good work with 
the frosh last year, and Crosby, who 
did well tbe first year but who was kept 
out of tbe sport last year by injuries, 
should make a combination that will 
be hard to beat. 

Most of tbe Christmas holiday season 
will be spent on tbe ice in the Boston 
Arena, and it is hoped that ice on the 
rink will greet the squad when they 
return to College next term. 

Aggie has always had reason to be 
proud of her hockey team and this year 
there is an indication that she can 
expect as much from them if not more 
than in the past. Another promising 
fact regarding the squad is that there 
are seven men trying out for the posi- 
tion of goal tender, to fill the vacancy 
caused by the graduation of Mason 
Alger who held down the berth so ad- 
mirably last year. 

The schedule is as follows: 
Jan. 12, Dartmouth at Hanover. 
15, Amherst at home. 

19. Williams at Williamstown. 

20, Hamilton at Clinton. 
Feb. 2, Yale at New Haven. 

9. West Point at West Point. 
19, Williams here. 
23, Amherst at Pratt Field. 
There are also games pending with 
Cornell, Albany Country Club, Boston 
University and Springfield College. 

"The best pari of the education you 
will receive at ibis institution is netting 
aquaiuted with God. And don't let tbe 
lines of communication gel ton tangled 
up." said Dr. !Samuel A. Flint of Boston 
in chapel last Sunday morning. Dr. 
Kliot is one of the e\ecilt i ves ot Ihe 
American Unitarian Association. 

"Youth wants a religion that does 
things— a religion that is practical — or 
It doesn't want any religion at all." 
be said. "They don't want a religion 
Of negation; they want a religon l,lal s> 
a challenge. The danger with most <>l 
us is not too much lite, hut too little life. 
The trouble is apt to be deficient vital- 
ity, not excessive vitality. Goodness is 
not keeping out of things— II is getting 
into things and transforming them 
from the inside." 


The Schedule Boon sends out tbe 
following notice, calling attention 
to the Junior and Senior election 
cards now ready which are due not 
later than Monday night. 
17th. The Sophomore election cards 
are ready today and are due Decem-

Charles Wakefield Cadman and Prin- 
cess Tsianina Present Program. 
Charles Wakefield Cadman and the 
Indian princess. Tsianina. gave a con- 
cert Friday, Dec. 7, in Stockbridge Hall. 
A large audience greeted (he artists, j 
listened with close attention to the won- 
derful music and gave proof of their ap- 
preciation by their demands for encores. 
The best-received selections were Tsi- 
anina's rendering of Mr. (adman's song, 
"At Dawning", and (he "Canoe Song" 
from his opera. "Shanewi-/'. Tsianina 
hasabeautiful me/./o-soprano voice and 
her clear enunciation brought nut the 
beauty of every word of her songs. 
Cadman is not only a distinguished 
composer but is unusually fortunate In 
that be has the vigorous style and tech- 
nique necessary to adequately present 
his own compositions. The whole pro- 
gram was admirably balanced and well 
appreciated by tbe audience. 

As a result of Christian Associat ions 
appeal to parents of undergraduates at 
M. A. C, $330 has been received . This 
is approximately one-third of the 
amount necessary to support the work 
of the Association for the yea*. 

Homer B. Hulbert of Springfield 
Talks on Conditions in Far East. 

One of the most interesting talks of 
the year thus far was given at assembly 
Thursday. Dec. 0th by Mr. Homer I,. 
Ilurlliurt of Springfield. The address 

was on the question of "The Far Hast," 
and how il atTerls the country. 

"One of the most awful blunders the 
United Stales ever made" be said, "was 

tat sending of Commodore Peary Into 

Japan, cramming an unwelcome treaty 
down their throats ami setting them an 
example of (rue "brute lone" which 
has imbued in (hem the ioea that a 
militaristic spirit la the only means of 

bringing tbe world to roeogalte their 

standing. Today I he Japs are tollowing 
the same course of "grabbing off" ter- 
ritory as England, France, ami even the 

United Statt panned, D> you 

think that the Phillipines today would 

accept independence If tbe United States 

ilid not guarantee them protection ? 
Not on your life! With (he Japanese 
close at hand ihe Philippines arc 000 
tent to remain under our Hag.'' 

Tbe speaker declared (hat Japan was 
becoming a master in the art of intrigue, 
lie described Ihe treachery of Japan in 
warring on China without cause, using 
the excuse that they were protecting 
Korea from Chinese oppression while 
Korea lias lain 4,000 years at the very 
feel of China wit hont moleslat ion. In 
return for Ibis "protection" Japan look 
"not blag" from Korea except her mine-. 
forests and fisheries. 

Concluding bis arraignment of mili- 
taristic policies Mr. Ilurlburi said. "As 
long as God gives me a drop ol blood in 
my veins and a fiber of nerve in my 
body I will light for Ihe freedom and 
liberty of oppressed mankind.' 

Mr. Ilurlbiiit was in tbe Korean Gov- 
ernment Service for twenty years and 
is closely associated with the movement 

for Korean Independence.

Last rehearsals for Ihe Aggie Itevue, 
which will be presented Friday night, 
are being held this week. Fach class 
is putting special effort into making its 
act as effective as possible, and the Ite-

standard set up in previous years. On 
Thursday night, most of the acts will

Small Crowd Present in Town Hall. 
Concert Well Given. 

The Musical Clubs gave their second 
Concert Of I be season lasl Friday Bight, 
Dec 7. in Ihe HadlcvTown Hall. Theic 
was a comparatively small crowd pres- 
ent, probably because there was not the 
usual attraction of dancing aftciward. 

The members of ihe (dubs were able 
to see part of the entertainment at 
Stockbridge Hall before starling fof 
lladley, and left by bus at 7-30. They 
were accompanied by Harlan Worth ley, 
former (ties Club coach, as lacully 

This rear's Orchestra, appealing for 

(he first time, was a pleasant surprise to 
everyone. Despite the lad Dial a great 
deal Of material was lost by graduation, 

ihe new material, combined with tbe 

excellent coaching of Prof. Davis and 
the leadership of Itussell Noyes, innic 
than made up for it. With a little mors 
practice the orchestra should be one of 
Ihe biggest attractions on the Musical 
Club's program. 

The Glee Club showed improvement 
over its peitorinancc in Conway, al- 
though as before, handicapped bj ■

in. ne ancient (lining. 

Baeept lot tbe Insertion of i be orches- 
tra, the program was siinilai lo 
presented in Conway, a lew changes 
being made in (he se led ions themselves. 

There is to be only one concert during 
the Christmas vacation this year at 
Rockland, Dec M, There will be dan- 
cing afterward. Another concert has 
been arranged for Jan. 1M, at Belcbei

concerts during (he winter term.

of both teams was commendable. The

the former. Playing without Temple, 
their triple threat man, they lacked 
their fine form of last week when they 
defeated the Alpha Gamma Rho 20 to

Kpsilon. Bartlett was high scorer of 
the game. Goodwin played well on the 
defense, breaking up all the Q. T. V. 
attempts to score.

A Christmas Vacation Suggestion To Senior* 


*HIS is your last year in college. This is your 
last Christmas vacation. 

Your career after graduation is a question 
that you will want to talk over with the folks 
at home. They will be even more interested than 
you are. Now is the time to do it. 

The John Hancock has in its field organization 
producers who began as life insurance men immedi- 
ately after graduation and have made a conspicuous 
success of it. 

Why waste time trying out something else which 
looks 'just as good" and then come into the life

After several discouraging years for 
agriculturists we not* with satisfaction 

the report made by the Secretary of 
Agriculture to President Coolldge last 
week. The report is optimistic and as- 
suring. The agricultural situation as ■ 

whole is said fobs very much better to- 
day than it was a year BgO. This is due 

in a large degree lo advances in legisla- 
tion. The total farm income is greater 

by about one billion dollars according 

to laicst estimates. And. in addition, 
the values of farm products is greater 
this year compared to the values of 

other commodities than It has been for 

sometime. This makes the farmers' 
position belter not only as In actual 
amount of income hut as to amount of 

purchasing power. 
Whether we study agriculture directly 

or not we are all vitally interested in 

the agricultural situation, We all use 

the products of this basic industry and 
the economic condition of the world as 

a whole is dependenl In bo small degree 

on the economic condition of the 
farmer. The problem is one that 
lOUCbes each one of us directly whether 
as producer or consumer. As popula- 
tion presses down on the food supply 
We become mole and more aware of the 

fact that prosperity of the agriculturist 
must be maintained. The United States 
Department of Agriculture Is doing all 
in its power through the organisation 

of etlicient marketing systems, the 
discovery of new met hods, and the 
education of the farmer. And we arc

ised and decided to answer two points 
brought out in the communication. 

The expression "try lo arouse a satis- 
lied student body to action" interests 
me, for it savors of " old-fogey Ism". 
"Satisfied?" out of some fifty-odd 
freshmen interviewed on the subject of 
freshman agriculture, only one enjoyed 
the course and though l it amounted t( 

Il might interest the Writer of No. 8 
(o know that Just 100 people— students 
and faculty— have taken the interest to 
speak to the writer of the letter which 
appealed a couple of weeks ago. and to 

say ai leaei thai there was something 

in what he said. That would suggest 
that all are not satisfied with things as 
i hey are. 

And I might remind the writer Ol \". 
8 that there are many here who want 
to see things done ditl'erently but who 
are afraid to come forward and say so 
because of some foolish fear that they 
might t hereby "think" a course or not 
get their degree. 1 say this because 1

To THE Kkitok ok TBE COLLEGIA* ! 

In a recent number of the COLLEOIAM 

Dr. Torrey found occasion to score the 

Aggie students' apparent Inability to 

reason. He stated that he had pic 
sented facts to his classes and that they 
had failed lo draw the obvious deduc- 
tions. Dr. Torrey wonders why the stu- 
dents cannot reason. The answer is 
simple. They do noi need lo most of 
the time, and minds as well as muscles 
atrophy with disuse. An analogy may 
be drawn between the average student 
here at M. A. C. and a small boy with a 
new bicycle. You can teach the hoy 
all that is known concerning the prin- 
ciples of motion and the theory of bal- 
ance. Von can instruct him in the 
most minute details ot the mechanism. 
You can teach him the chemistry of the 

materials com posing the bicycle, and 

perfect him in the history of bicycles 
from the time of the Korean niother-in- 
law of whom the speaker in Assembly 
told us, to the present day. He may 
know all these things, but when bis 
instruction is finished, can be mount 
the bicycle and ride oil".' He can not. 
The case for the reasoning faculty 
which Dr. Torrey claims the students 
lure do not use, is precisely the same. 
The mind may be a storehouse of facts, 
and the student theoretically possessed 
of everything necessary to simple de- 
duction, and still he will lack precisely 
what the boy with the bicycle lacks,— 
practice. And, as long as the present 
system of examinations is retained 
practice is what he will never have, for 
examinations put a premium on mem- 
ory work, and make reasoning unneces- 
sary. In the present system, instruc- 
tors test the students for receptivity, 
not activity, of mind. The answer, 
then, to Dr. Torrey's query is obvious. 
Why should they think?

To THE hmroit oi THE COIXEOIAW: 

The chief criticism those of us so far 
away from the college in this section 
have to make of the make-up of the 
COLLEOIAS this year is this fact that 
the campus calendar has been omitted. 
For instance none of us know what 
names the athletic teams are playing 
each week. Unless the alumni know

Ralph Harlow, now lecturing at 
Smith College, spoke at the Christian 
Association meeting Thursday evening, 
Dec. 6. His subject was, "The Perils 
of a Waning Idealism." 

The idealism of America during the 
war was that the Allied Nations were 
fighting so that such tortures as were 
going on in the Near East should be 
ended forever, Mr. Harlow pointed out. 
We blamed Germany for standing by 
and allowing Turkey to massacre the 
Armenians when Germany had control 


5AMED for their shade and texture . . . Famed for the purity of their wool . . . Famed for their shape- 
holding and wearing qualities. 

The name "Burberry" among elothiers means as mueh as "Sterling" among silversmiths ... It is the 

stamp of everlasting quality. 

During Christmas vaeation ... A " Burberry " from the haii£ers of 1VM WALSH. 

of Turkey, but he was offered the con- 
trol so as to prevent the recurrence of 
these atrocities and we refused to have 
anything to do with the Near F.asl. 
Worse tragedies have occurred since the 
Armistice but we have simply stood by 
and looked on. The solution suggested 
by Mr. Harlow is for the United States 
to take a more active part in Interna- 
tional affairs. 

At present Mr. Harlow is very much 
interested in the fact that America's 
thirty-two political prisoners, who were 
imprisoned for pacificism, are still in 
confinement . These men merely stood 
for what they believed. For I his stand 
they were thrown into prison, in a free 
country, according to the speaker. All 
other countries except Turkey had 
freed their political prisoners by t he end 

of lWltt. He urged us lo let ihe federal 
authorities know thai we waul these 
men freed. 



Cash Prizes to be Given for the Best 
Essay on "The M. A. C. Man." 
The campus slogan this year is "The 
M. A. C Man". In order to promote 
interest in the slogan and to make it 
vital to as many of the students and 
the alumni as possible a prize essay 
contest is being arranged which will 
contain the following elements and 

1. The essay shall nut exceed 2500 
words in length. 

2. It shall consist mainly of: 

a. A clear analysis and descrip- 
tion of the typical Aggie man 
or in the words of President 
Butterfield, "What ought lobe 
the distinguishing characteris- 
tics of the graduated! Ihis in- 
stitution, man or woman" and 

b. A discussion of how the college 
can best develop this type of 
student and graduate. 

Money prizes of $15, $10 and s"> for 
the first, second and third best, will 
be awarded. 

If the quality of the essays justify 
it (in the estimation of the Adjucat- 
ing Committee) they will be primed 
and distributed among the students 
and the alumni. 

All essays must be in the hands of 
President Butterfield on or before 
March 1, 1924. 

The name of the author should not 
he indicated in any manner but a 
sealed envelope in which is con- 
tained the name, class and address 
of the competitor should be en- 
closed in the envelope containing 
the essay.

Born in Taris, son of a wealthy 
tradesman. As a student won 
a prize lor an essay on lighting 
the streets of Paris. Held vari- 
ous Government posts. A mar- 
tyr of the Reign of Terror. 
Founder of modern chemistry. 

This is the mark of the 
General Electric Com-

of 100,000 men and 
women engaged in pro- 
ducing the tools by 
which electricity — 
man's great servant — 
is making the world a 
better pines to live in. 

They couldn't destroy 

the work he did 

"The Republic has no need for savants," 
sneered a tool of Robespierre as he sent 
Lavoisier, founder of modern chemistry, to 
the guillotine. A century later the French 
Government collected all the scientific 
studies of this great citizen of Paris and 
published them, that the record of his re- 
searches might be preserved for all time. 

Lavoisier showed the errors of the theory 
of phlogiston— that hypothetical, material 
substance which was believed to be an ele- 
ment of all combustible compounds and to 
produce fire when liberated. He proved 
fire to be the union of other elements with 
a gas which he named oxygen. 

Lavoisier's work goes on. In the Research 
Laboratories of the General Electric Com- 
pany the determination of the effects of 
atmospheric air on lamp filaments, on metals 
and on delicate instruments is possible be- 
cause of the discoveries of Lavoisier and 
his contemporaries.

First game will be played on 
Dartmouth's Ice 

The M.A.C, Hockej team journeys t<> 
Hanover Saturday to play the Dartmouth 
aggregation. Dartmouth haa alwaya dia- 
tinguiahed herself on tin- ice but suffered 
,i i' l reverse against Princeton recently. 
The Green team hai been practicing at 
Lake Placid the past, two weeks and will 
have the advantage over the \gates who 
have been unable t<> practice on good ice 
until the past wick. 

The squad tried to hold daily practices 
in the Boston Arena during i he * In ist mas 
Holidays hut the great demand t<»r the 
ice during that period made it possible to 
only hold one good workout on the glassy 

surface while in that vicinity. 

The squad has been favored with cold 
weather the past tour days snd the rink 
has been flooded and daily workouts are 
being held on it. The men will no to 
Hanover with the old Aggie fight and are 
■ore to give a good ,i< < ouut of themselves. 

"Jerry" McCarthy '21 and "Hubba" 
Collins '22 were at the Arena in Boston 
working with the squad during the holi- 
days and taught the men much of the art 
Which has made lioth of these men 

recognised as excellent players on the ice. 
McCarthy has been chosen to captain the 
Olympic team which has already sailed 
for Europe and Collins captained the A 

team in the Winter of 1(»22 and was the 
fasteat man on the ice at that time. He is 
now located at Natick where he is Coach 
of Athletic^. 

I uesday afternoon the team will pl.ty 
a game with Amherst on the Aggie rink.

France, in 1919. Six nations were repK

Program Varied and Much 

\s the 9:22 pulled OUt Ol Rockland the 

morning ol Dec. 27th it carried with it 
the members of the Iggie Musical Clubs, 

tilling in the happiest, and perhaps the 
sleepiest, stati- of mind that they had felt 

on the return trip from .m\ concert this 
season. I heii lone com ert <>i the < 'hi isi 
mas vacation was given the night before 
in the Opera House at Rockland, under 
the auspices ol the local \\ an's Club. 

It was the most successful i onccrl I litis 

fat this season financially, socially and 
technically. Several of the best numbers 
had to be omitted because ol the absence 

ol some ill the more talented members, 

but the) were not seriously missed 

The men met at the South .Station 

Wednesday ifternoon, Dec 20, and left 
for Rockland on the 5:12 train. Upon 
their arrival the) were greeted by members 

ol tin Woman's Club, who parked them 
tor the night at various homes around 

town Later, t he\ gathered at the ' rpen 

I louse, where a large crowd awaited ihem. 

Before the concert began, Mis. Hoiden, 

president ol the Woman's Club .mil 
mother of "Diik" llolden, '20, gave a 

short speech introducing the clubs. 
Among other things, she imp res s ed upon 

the audience thai, although the men 
came bom Amherst , t hey did not represent 

Amherst College, oi even "Amherst 

Agricultural College". It is encouraging to 
know that in a single evening some 600 

were admitted to that select (lass of 

people who are able to make that dis 
t in' t ion!

The Aggie basketball squad has been 
practicing diligently the past two weeks 
for the coning two games this week 
Friday night and Saturday afternoon 
with Wesleyan and Trinity respectively. 
The men returned early from the Christ- 
mas vacation and the time has been spent 
in strengthening defense and making 
passing and shooting more accurate. In 
several practice games the team has 
■hewed up well and should be in good 
form to take on both opponents the 
latter part of the week. 

So far this season Wesleyan has de- 
feated Clark and Iranklin and Marshall 
College, going down to defeat in their 
game against Columbia by a large score. 
Trinity started off rather poorly the 
first of the season with deteat by the 
Albany Law School. Yak and Franklin 
and Marshall but in their last five games 
before the vacation they won every one. 
They have shown themselves to be a 
strong organization and one which will 
be hard to subdue, but the Aggie team has 
a reputation of being undefeated on their 
own floor in two years to uphold and the 
best can be expected of every man.

Instructor to Become Educational 
Missionary in China 

Guy A. Thelin, instructor in agronomy, 
left the college on January 2 to go to New 
York City, where he will spend the next 
six months in graduate work in theology 
at Columbia University. Mr. Thelin will 
leave in June for Foochow, China, where 
he is to be an educational missionary under 
the Baptist Mission Board. 

Mr. Thelin's home is in South Dakota, 
and he graduated from the South Dakota 
Agricultural College in 1920, winning the 
degree of Bachelor of Science. He came 
here immediately after his graduation 
from college, and has been assisting in the 
teaching of agronomy. Mr. Thelin was a 
member of the Student Volunteer Band 
here, and was the leader for some time. 

Prof. Hicks outlined the policy of his 
department which attempts to give 
physical training of some sort to every 
student in college. This plan was insti- 
tuted by Prof. Hicks and is being followed 
by many leading colleges today. The lack 
of equipment is particularly noticeable 
and the facilities are entirely inadequate 
but the administration of the college is 
optimistic of remedying these conditions 

ooft. Prof. Hicks said, "The State owes 
it to the college and its students from a 
i old-blooded standpoint of dollars and 
i t-nts. There are many men entering college 
who cannot pass the physical tests for the 
Reserve Officers' Training Corps. With 
proper expenditures for equipment and a 
building, these defects could be remedied 

- the physical conditions are remedial. "

if we were looking at it from a purely 

Mtronornkal standpoint. But the lad 

that our time i> divided into section by 
which we judge progresn and promotion 
and conditions in general leads u- to an 
especial interest in a new year, not as a 
period of time nacesaarih different from 

any other, but as a time when we can take 

an account oi stock ami visualise our 
comparative standing. 

With this fact in mind it would be well 
(or us each to take the time for an inven- 
tory. l.<t us analyze our u-e of the past 
year and endeavor to ascertain our gains 
and our losses during that period. And 
let usappl) whatever conclusions we may 
reach to the year which is not a( its 
inception. With a clear knowledge ol 

Values derived from the Study ol tin- 
previous year we cannot help but profit 
in the \ear to come. New Year's resolu- 
tions all too often deal with the trivialities 
,,t life and seldom are broad enough t<> 
form a working basis l>y which the new 

\ear may he put to better and fuller use. 
The "Collegian" takes this opportunity 
to wish each and ever) Aggie man a 

happy and prosperous New Year in which 
he may profit by the years which have 
gone before. 

If you were suddenly stopped on the 

street some day and asked, "Why did y.ui 
come to college?" we have BO doubt that 

you would assert that your purpose was 

to gain an education. But U you took 

time to figure out in your own mind during 
your Unsure moments the real reason for 
the mow we believ.- that you might find 
yourself mistaken. The fact that very fea 

men know in what subject Of even in 
what division they intend to major at 

the time when they enter college would 
seem to indicate that their ideas along 
educational lines were somewhat hasy. 

Probably the biggest factors which draw 
men to college are friends who have 
preceded or will accompany them and an 

idea that college attendance is stylish. 

Some men undoubtedly merely wish to 

defer the period of enforced financial 
independence. Bui at any rate we believe 
thai it would be safe to state thai the 
va-a majority do not start out with the 
idea of gaining an education as the 
motivating factor. 

Such a condition cannot help but 
influence the calibre ot work done by the 
Students. The man who U takine, l"> 
college course blindly without some 

definite u«>al cannot c\pc.t to accomplish 
wonders. The student who spends his 
lime in escaping work rather than iii 
looking lor work is wasting his lime and 
money. Let US, the, endeavor to orient 

ourselves as soon as possible ami to lav 

out a definite COUTSC to be puiMled SO that 
we shall not ultimately find that our 
time has been spent for oaught 


Quotation for today: "Oh, how I hate 
to get up in the rooming." 

It takes bravery worthy 

of the world's greatest hero 

To get out of bed when 

The temperature's zero!

I low ml I.. Knight, H«i-. for many 
years Associate Editor of the Experiment

The Experiment Station Record is an 
abstract magazine published in Washing-

other countries. 

Members of the present student body 

know of Mr. Knight indirectly as the 

author of the CoUege sunt;, "Loyal Soils 
of Old Massachusetts". Alumni readers 

of the Collegian will recognise in the nee 

Editor-in-Chief of the Record the former 

Editor-in-Chief of the "Aggie Life" in 
1901-02, this paper having been the 

forerunner of the present College paper. 
While, in college Knight was known 

for the fearless wav in which he handled 

the college problems <>t the day. rhe 

pungent editorials which he wrote with 

reference to campus happenings are like-

gratification, t h ere fo r e , that reference is 

made to this well-earned promotion.

for the summer meeting .it the National 

Education Association. The meeting will 
be held June 29 to July .">. 

A piece oi real literature lias broken 
out on the- campus. It is a book of poetry 
- good, sound, -olid workmanlike poetry, 
made up of hard ideas treated with mature- 
tc . hnic. 

The name of this book of poems is 
"Doctor Hen of Butter Mill". 

The author is I'rolessor Frank Prentice- 
Rand of North Amherst and M.A.C. 
There is a tore-word by David Grayson. 

The publishers .ne- the Cornhill Pub- 
lishing Co., of boston. 

The piece is not mentioned, but what- 
ever the figure the book is worth it. 

Professor Rand has written pocirv 
before. His reininisei-iiees of "< '.arling- 
town", in particular, have- not been 
unknown to Aggie people, but the present 
book is not only larger in SUM and more 
ambitious in external appe-araiice than 
former ventures, but the poetry itsell 
represents a distinct advance. It is more 
mat me- and substantial. The work is 
better through ami through. 

In the main this book paints the old 

Mew England character against the old 
N.-w England background. In both cases 
it is the New England ol tradition rather 
than of present Int. The actors who 
move- across the- M.i^c of Butter Hill 
an- not the miscellaneous jam of mixed 
nationalities whom one- sees in Boston or 
Hartford, nor even in Sunderland or 
SwampsCOtt. Nor is Butter Hill itself at 
all like the- place where nine tenths of t la- 
New England population now lives. Yet 
the New England hills arc here vet, as 

firm and beautiful as ever, and the 

traditional Yankee still survives in num- 
bers ami quality not inconsiderable. And 
those rugged hills and rugged personalities 
will not be forgotten evidently while 
Professor Rand elects to write verses. 
It is said that there is today in America 

a strong re-vival of interest in poetry 
that all sorts of people are- reading it more 

and more. It may be Imped thai these 
lovers of poetr) will find Professor Kami - 

book. It will do them good and will 
advertise to the world the- country which 

we especiall) love. And everyone who hails

Conservation Program Outlined 

Mr. S. T. Dana, director of the- N'orth- 

eastern Forestry Experiment Station of 

the- United States Department .-i ( ..nser- 

vation was the speaker at the- first ol the 
weekly assemblies of the winter term of 
the college last Wedne-sdav atte-rnoon. Mr. 
Dana, who has spent many yean in work 
relating to the forests of the country, 
spoke on the relation of wood to the daily 
life of the people. 

The speaker pointed out the close 
relationship which we have with trees 
and their products, and spoke- of the 
tremendous importance which wood plays 
in the life of every man. He stressed the 
importance- of ccmse-rving the wood as 
much as possible. "Forests have- not l>een 
treated like a ve-ge-atble crop," he said, "as 
they ought to have- been. They have been 
treated like coal mines. The wood has 
been cut out and not replaced, until now 
there is prnCtkaHy no virgin timber left 
in the- country. What little we have is in 
the Far West, and we now baveleas virgin 
timber than has 1 ranee." SL'oO.IMM) a ye-ar

Far West, where the last remaining supply 
is now to be found, to the markets in the

Government, he claimed, and the govern- 
ment now has more than [fiO.000,000 acres 

of national 'Torcsts are- indispen- 
sable," he said, "they are not holding 

their own at the present time against the 
attacks of the hmibe-rmcn. and the- 
responsibility for saving them is with 
the coming generation."

"Ag" Students at Illinois 

are feeling justly proud of their University for 
developing the State Champion cow, Illini Dul- 
cina De Kol. 

Her record yield was 24313.2 lbs. milk, 1245.21 
lbs. butter in one year. In addition to being Illi- 
nois Champion, this Holstein is the first 1200 lb. 
cow the State has had. 

Students who are some day going to be vitally 
interested in heavy milk production and good 
feeding in their own barns, should know that 
Diamond Corn Gluten Meal was a sub- 
stantial part of Dulcinas ration during her record 
year. DIAMOND, in fact, was the protein basis 
of the mixture. 

Remember this when you start feeding your 
own cows: You can count on DIAMOND for 
large yields without sacrifice of good health.

made by "Hubba" Collins, 1922, coaching 
at Natick High School this fall, winning 
the championship of the Midland League. 
Natick High won 11 games and lost one. 
The one game lost was to an Aggie- 
coached team, being Starr King's New- 
buryport High School team. "Hubba's" 
team scored 218 i>oints to their opponents'

his championship football team are lining 
up for Aggie. They will probably visit 
the Campus sometime during the winter 
with the Natick High School basketball 
team, which is making a four-day trip 
up here ttie last of February.

With the advent ot the Basketball 

Season, the opportunities for good college 

singing become at once evident. The 

custom of singing b et we e n the halves of 

the games give us the best ( h.mee to really 
learn some of the less familiar solids. 
Since everybody has a song l>ook, the old 
problem of not knowing the words is 
eliminated. If everyone merely goes to 

the slight trouble of remembering to 

bring his song liook we should be assured 
of some good, snappy intermissions at all

received his early education at the

Later he commenced the study of Botany 

under Dr. Asa Gray at Cambridge. Soon 

after the completion of his studies at that 
institution he became a pupil of Professor 
AgaSSSS and for several years was his 
private assistant. 

He was electe d Professor of Com-

at M.A.C. in 1872 but died of a dis-

some time only a year later. He wrote

Alumni of Trinity have elected a com-

ou t by several members of tin- organi-

Hi,- world never Knew what a horse 

could do until the how and mule pulling 

contests were held at the Iowa State fair 
u vi) weeks ago. The teams tested de- 
veloped all the way from K.C. to 21.2 BOrse 

power and exerted from 2000 pounds to 
2300 pounds tractive pull. The size of the 
l,,ad horses and mules can pull depends 
largely upon the road The 2300 pound 
tractive pull was sufficient to move L' 1 
tons of coal over a level brick pavement 
or to pull a five-bottom 14 inch plow 
through stubble. 

These tests were made possible 1>> the 
horse dynamometer, the invention of 

Prof. K. V- Collins of the lofft State 

i allege of Agriculture. 

It will readily he -ecu that no team ot 

horses, rated at two horse power, could 
exert 21 horse power for any length ot 
time. The tests demonstrate that the 
horse ha- a great reserve of power upon 

which he can draw when it is needed for 
tin tOUgh -pot- of the road-, on the hills 

and over l>a<l pavements. 

The tests also gave alarming demon- 
strations of the different tractive pull 

that is required to pull a ton weight over 

different road surfaces. The result *. 
Showing that it i- easier to pull three 
tons on a concrete road than it is to pull 
one ton on a firm dirt road, indicate 
forcefully the value of hard surfaced road-. 

The practical value of the tots made 

possible by the Collins dynamometer will 

readily be recognised. Race horses have 
progressed steadily because sires have 
been selected on the basis of actual 
performance. Draft horses and mules 

base made much -lower headway because 
they were rated not l>\ what they proved 

they could do but on what some judge 

thought they could do, and there is a 
\ a-t ditUi ciu e.

over a kite string, it was a simple thing 
to prove that lightning was nothing more 
than a tremendous electrical flash. 

For centuries before Franklin flew his kite 
in 1751 philosophers had been speculating 
about the nature of lightning. With elec- 
trified globes and charged bottles, others had 
evolved the theory that the puny sparks of 
the laboratory and the stupendous phenom-

Franklin substituted fact for theory — by

of the Winter 

Last Friday evening in the 
drill hall the M.A.C. basket- 
ball team opened what prom- 
ises to be a successful season 
by defeating Wesleyan 40-19. 
Although the Aggie five has 
been called a green team be- 
cause of the tact that three of 
the team are sophomores the 
men played like vetearns and 
the passes wore straight and 

Captain "Eddie" Bike of 
the Aggies started the scoring 
before the game was well 
under way by a pretty shot 
from the side. A few seconds 
later McLane made a foul 
good. From then until the 
end of the halt Aggie contin- 
ued to pile up a score slowly 
with first a basket and then a 
foul while Wesleyan mixed in 
with tallies at intervals but 
never succeeded in overcom- 
ing the lead of the home team.

Smith College Professor, 

Former Missionary, Talks on 

"The Will to Believe" 

The Will to Believe" was the 

subject chosen by Rev. Kalph 
Harlow ot Northampton for his 
sermon at chapel last Sunday. 

Stating what he intended to ac- 
complish, the Rev. Mr. Harlow 
said. "I want to help some ol you 
into clearer thinking of life. What 

is the purpose of existence? What 

is the struggle all about.'' What is 
the meaning ol these ambitions - 
these longings? It is harder today 
than ever before to believe that 
t In re is back of it all a loving God." 
From the standpoint ot belief 
there are two general classes ot 
j.t « .pit . ": !;. . c v. ho believe and are 

Unable to think and those who 
think and are unable to believe. 

The majority of college students 

fall under the latter class. They 
think and have difficulty in be- 
lieving. The\ have an intellectual 

difficulty. Yel we musl think on 

the matter of belief The person 
who does not think is to be pitied. 
I o meet the difficulty of those who 
think, we have to have an intellec- 
tual framework for our beliefs. We 
must have a reasonable basis for 


Rev. Mr. Harlow said that In- 
firmly believes that we have an 
animal ancestry. "Hut there i- a 
great difference," he --aid. "be- 
t ween in. m even t he most primi- 
tive man and the highest ani- 
mal." lie then spoke of the numer- 
ous great discoveries that man has 
made, of the re-oiio i i oal for 

example which man had stum- 
bled upon, and pointed out how 
unscientific it is to imagine that 
certain element- ju-t happened to 
gather together in the formation 
of resources which happened to be 
useful to man; in short, to imagine this universe was formed by 
mere chance. Hi- conclusion from 
these observations was that "This 

i- a universe behind which there i- 

a wonderful, marvelous order. I he 
world seems overwhelmingly to 

reveal a purpose, and that purpose 

seems to be human lite. It is only

were all that could be desired. In spite 
of the fact that the team was weakened 
by the failure of captain elect < .illord to 
return to college this year Coach Derby 
leels certain, in observing the material 
with which he has to work, that this 
year's team will uphold any prestige that 
former M.A.C. teams have enjoyed. If 
the tryouts of Saturday last are any 
criteria then the four men who will com- 
prise the team are fierce. Issac. bernald, 

and Ross. However, it must not be in- 
ferred that these men are certain of their 
position because there is an unusually 
fast squad pressing them closely, and, 
with the addition of Thompson no man is 
absolutely certain of his position. 

Intensive work is planned for the next 
two weeks in preparation for the K. ot ('. 
meet in Boston on Jan. 26. Especial 

interest i- held toward this meet since 
we run B. L. for the third and rubber 
race. What ever the outcome of this 
race, it is sure to be hut ly contested and 
should be one of the interesting events 
of the evening. 

The following week the team is matched 
with the Iniv. of Maine substituted for 

the Univ. of Vermont) and the Univ. of 

N. H. at the B. A. A. games in Boston.

Aggie's tram seemed to 
possess the old ability to put- 
pass her opponents, as have 
her teams in tin- past, and 
this rapid change of hands 
coupled with good shooting 
lor the basket proved too 
much tor the Middletown 
visitors although they came 
through at times with an 
exhibition of good basketball. 
At the end of tin- first half 
Aggie led 23-13. 

Starting off the second halt 
the Maroon and White play- 
ers sunk three baskets in as 

main- minutes, Samuels shoot- 
ing two and Temple following 

with another. In this half, as 
in the first, the play was fast 
and interesting, but baskets 
by the Aggie players dropped 
in frequently and should have 
been enough to take tin- heart 
out of the visitors hilt tiny 
kept striving to overcome the 
almost impossible lead and 
Cantwell threw in the third 
basket of the half for \Yes- 
leyan before the final i^un was 

Both ndes missed many 
-hots, a fact which proved 
costly tor Wesleyan, and one 
Which may be excused ot 
iggie as it was the first time 
that the men had been up 
against an adversary this year 
and they were just feeling the 
spirit of teamwork and the 
necessity of making good their 
tries. For Aggie Temple and 
Samuels were the outstanding 
stars while Captain Bike 
played an excellent brand ot 
basketball, and exercised line 
generalship over his team- 
mates. His baskets came at 
opportune times and he was 
a constant menace to his 
opponents. Smiley in the back 
position missed several hard 
hard shots at the basket, and 
he was also robbed of three 
i- he failed to dribble before 
shooting, but his covering 
was good, while Jones served 

a man to fall back on and 
was always alert and ready 
to pass or dribble. 

For Wesleyan ( ant well and 
McLane did good work, Mc- 
Lane especially proving to be 
a hard man to stop onre he 
was started for the basket. 
Hatfield was also fast and 
scored several times from the

ing <>f Trinity found tin- basket for 
two points. The home team con- 
tinued to keep tin- ball in their 
territory however and ai a result 
experienced very little difficulty in 

dropping in basket after basket . 

The A^k^' boys pasted com- 
pletely around ttii'ir opponents and 
also had tittle trouble in Stopping 

the offensive of the Trinity five. 
The visitors were held to two tone 

baskets in the first period and the 
score at half time was l.x-l in favor 
of M.A.C. In the second half 
however Captain Keating of the 
Hartford team found his aim and 
sunk three pretty baskets in one- 
two-three order, and again toward 
the end of the game diot a foul 
followed by another double tally 
from the tloor. He was by far the 
stellar player of the visiting team 
and his clean playing and clever 

passing were all that saved his 

teammates from a whitewashing. 

The game was rough at times, 
but both teams exhibited a fine 
brand of sportmanship and though 
play w.i- hard it was clean. The 
Vggie boys show ed themselves to be 
the better coached <>f the two 
teams, and th ou gh ii was their

team to be proud of alio" one well

universe there is a great Mind." 

'Where is a mind without a 

personality?" continued Dr. Har- 
low in his reasoning. "Minds are 
the agencies through which person- 
ality expresses itself. The Mind 
behind the universe is the greatest 

of minds. It is unscientific to con- 
clude that there is no Personality." 
His explanation of is meant 
by a personality was, "'This infinite 
Personality expressing itsell must 

be self-Conscious. There is no 

personality apart from self-con- 
sciousness. What kind of God 
Personality is there behind this 
universe? Tin- lite of Jesus is the 
final answer to tin- problem."

Several timea oi late we have noticed 
acts on the pari of the student bod) which 
transgressed the bordei line ol coui 
The most >tiikiii< example is shown in 
tin- prevalent attitude in assemblies. 
Speakers from .ill over the country honor

t.. -| (1 p during the talk. Am ot the 
speakers who have graced our platform 
within the la-t year have been worthy <>i 
attention. But when a speaker talk- a 
tiw minutes overtime and is reminded 
l>\ shuffling <>t lict and mutterings from 
the audience that lii- time is up we feel the limit of propriety has been 
passed. Think of the impression which 
tin speaker will carry awaj with him after 
such an ordeal! Think ol the poor adver- 
tising which we are giving io the college! 
Think oi what your attitude would be 
tow. ml a group oi students who might 
thus receive youl 

It is usually taken for granted that the 
college man is a gentleman, It is considered 
that he needs no book ol etiquette to 
v;ui<U- him in the t\ rival. i\ affairs ol life. 
And we do not wish to undertake the 
publishing ol such a work in these ...1 
limn-. Hut we feel that it is time that tin 
attention of the Btudent body was called 
to the seriousness ol the problem. As tin 
ol.] saying has it, "A word to the wise i' 
-nth, ient". 


We have been wondering, no* that tbe 
first term ia over, how much a man's 
marks reflet 1 his ability. 'That ia to Bay, 
is the man who averages 98 in all his 
subjects necessarily more intelligent than 
the man who averages 75? Or does he 
necessarily apply himself more con 
scientiously to his work' Do mark-, prove 

We have come to the conclusion that 
they unfortunatel) <lo not. A man may 

take one . oiu-r ami get 8 high mark ami 

Mill be one ol the l"\\< »1 ones in the class. 
And again his course may be Buch that 
he is still one of the highest in the class 
when be gel t a relatively low mark. This 
is partly due, of course, to "gut" courses. 
And ii is partly due, also, to different 
standards ol rating. < fne professor ma) 
give fort) percent <>t the class a mark <>i 
go and condition or flunk only one percent. 
Another teacher may give one percent a 
mark of ninety and condition or Bunk 
fort) percent. Obviously the difference 

in mark-, is not <ltie to variation- in in- 
telligence or in application, but to differ 
ence in standards ol marking. We venture 
to sa) thai the differences in marking in 
this institution vary over as wide a range 
a- that used in tbe example. 

What, then, doe- a mark mean? Ii wc 

limit it to the -indent- ol one COUrSC we 

cm doubtless deduce something as to the 
relative abilities of the students. But 
when we come to compare marks between 
the students ol various courses we can 
patently tell nothing. 
There ia no absolute remed) for such 

a situation. No two teachers will ever 

in. Tee pupil- on exactly the same basis. 
Bui we feel thai it would l»- possible foi 
them to agree much more than they do at 
present on a uniform system ol some kind. 
Elimination of ".^ut" courses would help. 
And studies of the theory of markin 
tli, p.ui of certain members ol the 
faculty would al-o tend to introduce 
uniformity. H the requirements for tbe 
i courses could l«- stiffened so that 
the -ame requirements were there net 
-ai v lor a mark oi 90 a- are necessary in 
the harder courses the standards <>l the 
institution would be raised and the dis- 
advantages of the presenl unequal l>as.-- 
would l>e eliminated.

\l\ President Butter held: 

I am v.rv thankful indeed lor your kind 

letter of October 3. It was so fortunate 
that my family was quite -ah- in spite of 
th<- fact that all of u- had the m.i-t dread- 
ful experience. Ai that time I wa- abroad 
with a pan v t hat w a- -<n i by the Japanese 
syndicate to -. .■ the agricultural enter- 
prises in the Dutch l.a-i Indies. I received 
the new- of the earthquake on September 
5th at a small town in the northern 
Celebes, and received the family news 
on October 18th upon my arrival at a 
Japanese port . 

I or man) days after the earthquake the 

people lived without light and any ade- 
quate food. My aunt, unci,' ami brother 
narrowly escaped death and l<>-t every-

The remaining pari of the city is quite

After all it wa- a great experience, a

Trips Made 

The M.A.C. Musical Clubs gave a 
concert last Wednesday night in Masonic 
Hall. Northampton, under the auspices 
nt the O.E.S. A pouring rain made the 
trip very unpleasant, and was probably 
tin- cause ni there being so small an 
audit- n< e present . 

Tin- program was essentially the same 
as in the previous concerts. There was 
dancing afterward, with musk by tin- 

Iggie Dance Orchestra. Refreshments of 
in- cream and cookies were served during 
the evening. 

Friday tiiuht the Musical Clubs bumped 
over tin frozen roads to Belchertown and 
gave a concert in the new lliuh School 
auditorium. The hall waa well filled, and 
the clubs put on a-, good a performance 
as they have in an) concert so far this 

Robert kVoodworth and his orchestra 
.11 1 ompanied the clubs and furnished their 
usual high class brand of music for 
dancing. Howard K. Gordon '23 served 

i- t H ultv representative. 

( »n the waj to Belchertown the bus 
containing most ol the men swerved out 
of tin' road and a limb crashed through 
one ni the windows. Russell Noyes, who 
was sitting directing in front 'it the 
window, waa the only victim of the 
accident, and he had the good fortune to

Plunderers, Parasites, Producers' 
Die Reverend Harr) F. Ward, professor 
in t he l nion Theological Seminal ) ol New 
Yoik ( it\, the speaker in assembly 
last Wednesday afternoon- 
Mr, Ward condemned the popular way 
nl classifying people by theii possessions, 
Hi' suggested the division, "plunderers, 
parasites and producers," that is. classi 
fying people l>\ their means of earning a 
living. Highwaj robbery is not .is honoi 
able as it used to be, s.iiil the speaker, hut 
there are other ways oi plundering which 
are as honorable as any method •»• earning 
a living. Laws have been passed to do 
away With some tonus ol this kind ol 
plundering but we have no! yet established 
systems to check tin- .ni ol profiteering, 
let alum- the spirit ol profiteering. Mis 
solution was thai we have got to either 
domesticate or exterminate the plunderers. 
I In parasites are a by product ot the 
plunderers. The idle rich group of para 
sites shows promise "I being diminished 
because oi the pleasing fact that the rich 
are beginning to get rid ol theii money. 
The fact that many more women are 
working is another hopeful sign. Mi Wai d 
put thi' wholesale marketers and the like 
in this class also. He s.iid thai we should 
-i. ni in the colleges to eliminate some of 
these companies l>\ discouraging the 
youth from entering this business. 

The producer is the only man who is 
square to the world and to himself. The 
speakei suggested that the producei 
should In- the miii to determine the 
market and i osl to the consumei ol his 
goods. Ih- s.iid, "It we become producers, 
we are living th<- creative life, we are

tbe Teacher's Meeting held in Stock 
bridge Hall, Tuesday, January 15. It 
was the third meeting ol the college year, 
Prof. Machmer wai i" chaffe. and ■ 
tliinl principle of teaching methodi was 
discussed. The essence <»i thi* principle 
wm that in will ordered procedure the

rcsponaibuity for getting the work resti 
with the students. Dr. FemaW of the 
entomology departmenl told how he 
Kxorapbshed this end in his laboratory 
work class-room discussion, lectures, and 
dairy quissea. Ptof.Searaol the pomology 
departmenl followed, describing the lea 
tureeoi hk method of instruction. He said 
that he did not hand out printed sheet* 
with the main point! ol his lectures on 
them as he once did, but iaetead gets a- 
many ol these point* si he can from tbe 
.tudentsat the beginning ol the lecture. 
Prof. Indiana who was to have been the 
third speaker, was awaj at Worcester so

been reorganised on the plan of practice 
precedes theory. 1" this class the tectum 
hour is not given wholly to a lecture but

One ot the most interesting Sunday 

morning chapel service* that ha- been

time was conducted h\ the Rev, John

Church, New York City. The speaker 
took a- the bast* ot hi- sermon the 

familiar story ot the good Samaritan. 
who helped the man who tell among the 
thieves. From this story he (Irew what 

seemed to him to be two \<-r\ significant 
fact- portrayed by two of the characters 
of the incident. The find, outatanding 

thing about tin- Story Wa* that it wa- a 
Samaritan who befriended him that tell 
among the thieve*. llnSini.iiil.iii- were 
the despised people ol tin- land at that 
time and no one ol the other < I.1--1 - ot 

people would even think of associating 

.untiling good with one ot these people 
Thus by making this man the hero of his 
story, b -ii- pointed out to hi- followers 
that n<> matter to what particular class 
a man may belong 1 here may be some good 
in him and that he i- not nei • warily bad 
jn-t because he happen* to belong to that 
class which they think i- bad

-peaker drew from the -lor\ wa- that 
the in. in who fell among the thieve wa* 
not definitely designated a- a member of 
any particular race or class but pi-t a 
certain man. In this way Jesus define* 
neighbor a- anyone who happen* to be 
in need when lb- uses it in the teaching 

"and love thy neighbor a- thyself." 
From th ••• two important teaching* 

Rev. Holme* showed how they might be

how much ot t he national, rat ial, and

What baa happened to the major duba? 
Before the war almost every major waa 
represented by a group which sought to 
gain c-stra -curriculum information on its 
chosen subject. Every week saw announce 
meats of meetings al which authorities 
.rere to cover some portion of the field in 
which ilic club waa interested. 

At preaenl <>nl> two or three <>t the 
majors are continuing the custom. Hie 
remainder have fallen by the wayside. 
Most of them became comatose during 
t he W ar period and evidently there has 
not been aumcienl interest in the studenl 
ImmIs m revive them. Hiis is obviously 
not ash should be. An> group of students 
who are actualh interested in a subject 
will not be conteol with the limited in 
formation which thej can derive from 
lectures ami personal reaearch. They will 
demand outside instruction. 

It is hard t.i toll whether the present 
condition oj inactivity is due to lack of 
interest or lack of initiative. We hate to 
believe that it is the former. Vel the 
latter is had enough. Nothing can be 
successful without an infinite fund of 

patience and interest behind it and the 

proper initiative to give it a start. Since 

our future habits arc largely determined 
1, N those we develop al preaenl it be- 
hooves us to show now the qualities which 
will stand Us in BUch good Staid alter I 



The college has taken a great forward 
step in requiring of its students tour years' 
rtudy of English, Doubtless much <>i the 
material studied in English courses is 
absolute!) worthless from a utilitarian 
viewpoint. The reading of masterpieces 

ol literature has little ValttB except an 

inspirational one. as we look at it. And 
the wa) in which il is taught take- away 

even the inspiration in altogether too 
many cases. But we feel that every gradu- 
ate of the college should be able to write 
and speak English which is grammatically 
correct. He should be able to spell and 
punctuate correctly. He should be able 


( Kir attention has been called to the 
fad that the furniture in the Memorial 
Building is not receiving the proper (are 
IIM the part ol the student body. This is 
especially true <>l the two divans in the 
lower hall. Thej have been abused to 

Midi an extent that they are growing 
weak and the upholstery is getting loose. 

Evidently they have been the scene of 
rough-houses rather than places ol rest. 

II everyone entering the building 
would remember thai it waa built for use, 

not abuse, and would conduct himsell 

accordingly, the facilities there presented 

would not only last longer, but would 
give a great deal more pleasure to those 
who use them. It must 1m- borne in mind 
that much of the furniture cannot DC re- 

If respect for the memory of those to 

whom the building is dedicated is not 
enough t<> insure proper usage, we might 

al least be careful 00 account ol the 

■elfish thought that we will have the use 
of the facilities longer if we do not mis- 
treat them. The Memorial Building 
should be a cherished and hallowed plan-. 
Let us see to it thai it is so used.

Customary Campus Questions 


Some weeks ago Dr. Torrey published 
some statements which reflected on the calibre of the average M.A.C. 

student. Speaking as an unbiased outsider, 
who is here not as a judge but as a student. 

I cannot admit that the M.A.C. student 
i- an intellectual imbecile. 1 have seen in 
him qualities which 1 will be proud to 

hold up as ideals before the- students of 
my own country. 

There are things however, wnich 1 must 
admit have been a cause of son- disap 

point nietii to me. The total indifference 

of the American to the stranger within 

his doors being one. In saying this I am 

voicing the sentiments ol scores ol 

foreign -indents I am personally ac- 
quainted with. Is it at all strange then 

that the interests, knowledge and the 
outlook of American students should 
remain so narrow and -tinted.-' I- it ,m\ 
wonder that "The Rising Ink- of Color" 
and suchlike literature he produced in 

the country and enthusiastically received? 
To us from the East such things are a 
shock and a challenge, and Cod help the 

world when the- Last takes up the chal- 

Cannot the- students ol this college, both 
foreign and native-born Americans, co-

The Aggie Auto Club held its annual 
meeting January Iftth in Memorial Hall. 

Prof. Graham waa reelected President and 
Mr. Kenney was reelected Secretary- 
Treasurer. Three officials of the Spring- 
field Auto Club were present and Stated 
the advantages of affiliation with the- 
latter body- I his orgaui/.at ion ha- a 
large number ol members who, as such, 

have access to valuable service and 

privileges. The question of affiliating was 

not decided upon at this meeting but was 

postponed until later. The matter of 

placing signs pointing to the college within 
a radius of twenty-five miles was also 
allowed to go over, for if the local club 

united with the Springfield body the 

latter club would handle the matter. 
Membership in the local club, which at 

om p osed wholly of (acuity 

members, is open to students and others 
connected with the college-. As the result 
of an understanding which the club has 
with the Rubber Store in Northampton.

Professor J.lB. Abbott gave a talk at 
the union agricultural meeting in Worces- 
ter on the subject, "The Development of 
the Dairy Farm." 


North College is one- of the- most 
prominent building- in M.A.C. history. 
Erected in 1867, it i- one of the original 
building- of the college, and with the 
exception of the old Physics Building, is 
the- only original structure still standing. 

It was built tor a dormitory and has 
la-en retained ehietly for this purpose 

throughout its history. Three of tin- four 
fraternities in the- early days of old Aggie-; 
Q.T.V., Phi Sigma Kappa, and the 
Shakesperian Club, now Alphi Sigma Phi, 

occupied the top tloor. Up to 1907, the 
College Reading Room, in which wen- 
kept new-paper- and periodical in- • - 
zinc-, was -ituared on the- first BOOT of 
the building. 

Since 1907, however, this ha- been 
taken over for the Social Union since 
that elate, the three fraternities mo\ed 
into separate hou-e- and newer ones 

occupied the room- tints made vacant. 

Now all the four-year fraternities have 
moved into separate houses, and the 
top BOOT of North College i- occupied by 
the- two-year club. A. 1 . < ■• 

South College is a newer building than 
North, being built in 1886, It was also 
intended for a dormitory, but it- purpose 
has been altered to a considerable extent. 
At first, it contained the zoological 
museum, a physics laboratory, and some 
class rooms in the north wing. On the top 
tloor beneath the tower wa- sit u.lte-d the 
meteorological department, while in t de- 
basement were the baths and lavatories. 
and the- fire department. 

Since 1910, however, the various 
departments and class rooms have been 
steadily replaced by offices, and also a

In Prizes for the Prize Cap 

For the best sentence of ten words or less on the value 
of the Wtliiams Hinge-Cap. we offer the following pi 
1st prize, $100; 2nd prize, $50; two 3rd prizes. $23 each; 
two 4th prizes, $10 each; six 5th prizes, $5 each. Any 
undergraduate or graduate student is eligible. It two or 
more persons submit identical slogans deemed worthy 
of prizes, the full amount of the prize will b awarded to 
each. Contest closes at midnight March 14 1924. Winners 
will be announced as soon thereafter as possible. Sub- 
mit any number of slogans but write on one side of paper 
only, putting name, address, college and clas' at lop of 
each sheet. Address letters to Contest Editor, The 
J. B. Williams Co., Glastonbury, Conn. 

Williams is as much better to shave with as the Hinge- 
Cap is better than other caps: The lather is heavier and 
holds the moisture in against your beard. Quicker softening 
results. Also, Williams lather lubricates the skin. There 
is noticeable absence of irritating razor friction. And 
Williams takes good care of the skin. Though you shave 
daily, your face remains smooth and feels comfortable. 
Williams is a pure, natural-white cream absolutely with- 
out coloring matter. Try it!

Sealed in 
its Purity 

Former President William Clark 

A serious mistake crept into the columns 

ol the Colle&Mn oi January 10. In the 

article aboul Clark Hall in thai issue it 

was stated thai that building was named 

after Henry James Clark, first professor 

of Natural History at thecoUege. It was 

there that the mistake was made. The 

building was named far William Smith 

( lark, 15. A lsis, I 1.1). 1874, Amherst 

College and Pn.D. 1882, Goettingen. Mr. 

Clark was instrumental in locating the 

Massachusetts Agricultural College in the 

Kami ot Amhersl and in 1867 with Levi 

Stockbridge and Paul A. Chadbourne 

decided the location of the first buildings. 

He was the first president and professor 

of Botany, serving in both capacities 

from 1867 until 1879. 

Previous to starting l>is work at Aggie 
he taught natural sciences at Willistoa 
Seminary, 1848-50, studied chemistry and 
botany with and under Goessmann at 
Goettingen, 1850-62, was professor of 
chemistry, botany, and soology at Am- 
herst College, 1852-58, and professor of 
chemistry, 1858-67. In the Civil War he 

served as Major, Lieut -Colonel, and 

finally Colonel of the L'lst Massachusetts 
volunteers and was in action at seven 
different battles. He was a presidential 
elector and secretary of the electoral 
college in 1864 and a member of the 
state legislature in 1864, 1866, and 1867. 
Hewasa Fellow «»t the American Academy 
,,i \rts and Sciences .\m\ a member of 
the state Board ol Agriculture besides 
holding many othei positions of honor 

and tru-t. In 1876 at the invitation of the 

[apanese government he went to Japan 
and organized the Imperial College ol 
Agriculture, of which he was the first 

president , 1876-77. 

President Clark's greatest achievements 
were in botany, which explains why the 
botany building was chosen to be named 

for him.

The open winter has made it possible 

,,,, m to spend an unusually larg "' 

of time out of doors and away from our 
studies. But, aa one of our advertisers 
said in our last issue, "Fooled again! Old 
M.,n Winter has stolen back." And with 
hi* reappearance has vanished our excuse 
for laxity in studies. 

I he winter terra is always one ol the 
hardest in the year, bul customarily the 
climate forces n> to attend pretty well to 
the matters in hand. It behooves us now 
to apply ourselves with extra diligence 
that we may not be among the missing 
,,, the start of the nexl term. "Better be 
safe than sorry", the insurance man 
cautions. "Many are called but few art 
chosen", say the scriptures. "Studies au 
hard but finals are harder", says tht 
Collegian. After quoting ourselves in 
such good company w* cannot refrain 
from offeringa little good advice. Remem- 
ber that a stitch in time saves nine. A 
little thought now saves great costs later. 
A w-w hours of concentrated application 
to studies spread judiciously through the 
term means more than an all night m 

ju-t prior to tinal-. 

( icnius has, we believe, been defined as 
the capacity for taking infinite pains. | ( ,. 
Could it not also be defined as the putting 
ol time on the thing whfc h will bring the 
atest ultimate results? Doubtless a 
„• of cards or a date tonight will give 
more present satisfaction than the acqui- 
sition ol the knowledge that farming is 
subject to diminishing returns or a 
soil infested with sorrel is probably acid 
and will profit by applications «>t lime. 
But ten years from now the knowledge 
of the latter facts will doubtless be 
much more important to us than would 
the pursuit of present and temporary 

We do not mean to discourage innocent 
amusements. Recreation and relaxation 
are necessities. A garw of cards after 
three or lour hours of study ma) serve to 
clear the mind and make further appli- 
cation possible. But recreation should be 
made the exception and not the rule. 
Seven dates a week is almost too much tor

The Yak University Press a-ks us to

A Reply 

I have been permitted to read Mr. 
Kafafian's article which appears in this 
number of the Collegian and I commend 
i, most heartily. The author's criticisms 
are just and illustrate the insidiousnew ol 
the American spirit ol "rush" which gets 
into the best intentioned of us. 

Of course there is .mother side to the 
matter then- always is to all matters 
and that is why life is so perplexing. I 
heard of a young man who won a prize 

not long ago from a prohibition league for 
the best essay against drinking, and the 
next week be received first prise from a 
brewers union for the best essay in favoi 
oi the liquor industry. 

My critic's article cm. s < lose to falling 
into the class ol m hemes for world pea, e, 

into national COUrtS "I justice, chin, h 

affiliations and "interplanetary confer- 
, aces". Ihe-.- are all beautiful ideals for 

a race of beatified men and women, but 

they scarcely pertain to the race which 
n.,w inhabits the earth. 

Mr. K. Italian ha- become aware of the 

fact that the American college system la a 
competitive handicap race between stu- 
dent and faculty. This snows that be i- 

really v;t-t t in^i an education at M..\.( . for 

true education begins by the progressive 
shattering of illusions. Let us have more 
destructive criticism. Here I take issue 
with Main Street and the prevalent 

platitude which ha- been Intuitu Up 

regularly in the Collegian lately. 

We are all caught in the same system. 
A tradition ol eternal conflict has de- 
veloped in our . olleges; the teacher is out 

to catch the boy and the bov i- going to 

outwit the tea. her at every chance he can 
find. Under such a system we make plenty 

of mi-take-. Lord know-, hut all th 
considered it is a wonder that we get as 

far a- we do. 

Now here i- th.- crux "I th.- situation. 
My ciiti. i- on.- .,1 those rare individuals 
who i- really in earnest ; he can see over 
the fence of hi- own provincial back yard; 
lie i- no longer an irresponsible boy . I here 

are perhaps halt a dozen like him in .\nv 

class and lor them the present system i- 
poorK adapted. Anv teacher would wel 
come an opportunity t<> deal with such a 
group in an entirely different way. We 
would assemble voluntarily and talk 
about the interesting things in the plant 

world; we would direct plant- ami per- 
form experiments; we would induce the 

p-eat law ol biology ; we would take all 
the time We Iter. led for tme-t i. in- \w\ 
diseUBSJonSI we would make c\cut - 

into philosophy, an. literature, history, 

and in ail ways we would try to humanize 
the science. Botany would be a window 

through which we would look out into the 


The world i- now running under the 
triumphant sway oi Democracy. Democ- 
racy want- quick and inexpensive results; 

it has neither time nor money for depth 
but it doe- want breadth. 1 am a part of 
the great machine which turn- out -in- 
dents to pattern, all perfectly standardized 
and warranted tree from all germs ol 
Heterodoxy. I am hired to teach a com- 
pulsory course in Botany tosome loOmen, 
and in a course ol eleven lectures .\nA 
twenty-two laboratory periods familiarize 
them with a science which took a hundred 
years to develop. It i- all of that special 
science which most ot our students will 
ever get; it is su ppo sed to underline 
horticulture and agriculture. That, you 
see puts another lace on the matter. 

Suppose I let upon the rather stringent 
requirements and dispense with the prod 

for a lime; then my ■ -t udent lies 

down on the job. < >h yes, he does! His 
thirst for knowledge is very quickly 
satisfied. I cut my eyeteeth long ago. It I 
relax in vigilance, students hand in old 
herbaria with new labels pasted over old 
one-; if I give them from April to Novem- 
ber to prepare a collection tliev -tart it 
in October and them blame me be. au-e I 
didn't insist on receiving it in June; it I 
a-k for it in June I'm damned lor making 
them work BO hard in the spring term 

when they are presumably more interested 
in the enobling pursuit of love. It I a-k 
for written exercises then a few samples 

are all I need to read; the rest ate gener- 

ally duplicates. Il I protest against 

-hittle— ne-> and carelessness I am told 
that it i- a required course and nobody 
ever doe- anything in required courses 
anyhow. Furthermore "what good will it 

ever do me to know about plant-.''" 

Suppose I try to get the class interested 

in a disCUSSkm, then the word gOM round: 
"Keep him going and we'll get out ol 

Lab today". Tnia i- an ingenious method 
ot avoiding work and I have used it 
myself in undergraduate days; it usually 
succeeds beautifully) for never i- the 
teacher bo happy a- when, hypnotised 
by hi- own eloquence, he i- setting forth 
hi- precious knowledge. 

If the faculty adopts the wide-open 

elective system the -indent proceeds to 

dodge all courses reputed to be -till, and 
major- in "alhlet ics and fussing". 

I have tried to -how that our present 
system is adapted to imperfect men in an 
imperfect world. Now tor a lew details 

of my critic'- artfc le. 

As to the good intentions ol the entering 
student I have noticed that it i- a general 
happy asset of human nature. 1 have 

furthermore heard that the road to hell 

i- paved witli ,-ood intention-. An exam- 
ination of the registrar's records in this 
and in other colleges concerning the 
scholastic equipment of many of our 
entering students would mitigate any 
undue optimism we might have concern- 
ing the average student and hi- burning 
thirst for knowledge. There i- no immedi- 
ate danger that it will seriously deplete 
die available supply of academic moisture. 
We must take care not to attribute to 
other- the same intensity of scholastic 
earnestness which animate- ourselves. 

With the protest against the diffusion 
of interests over too many subject- I am 
in full sympathy. I repeat again that 
three five-hour courses ate enough lor 
any term. But we are living in America 

in the twentieth century. Que Baataua 

Perhaps my strictures on the failings 

ol the -t udent body are sometimes cati-tic 
but I myself have never received mych 
help from flattery. It is when our failings 
are pointed out to u- that we can begin 
to take means to down them. Remember 

that sooner or later they will "get" us 
if we don't "get" them. Do you think I 
do not believe in the student? It is 
because 1 believe in him so intensely that 
! hate the thin.- of his personality 
./;,: means mask) which inhibit the 
expression of the real Self. Shall 1 bow 
u^itv vanity, laziness, insincerity, irro 
.an e. cruelty, vulgarity, lust, subterfuge? 
And will one man in M.A.C. say that tl 
devils are not clamoring for the possession 

of hi- lite? Il I must u- ■ the whip ot 
io combat the devils shall I not use it? 
It I can "rush" them into swine and 
down a Steep place into the -ea, shall 1 

hesitate? Encourage and lead, when you 

can. drive when you mu-t. ha- to be the 

teacher's motto.

Every now md then some undergradu- 
ate e\p; i wish that compulsory 

attendance at Chapel e\n, i-i- might be 

given ti|>. This i- especially likely to 

happen on a cold winter morning when 
nobody really want- to get up hall an 
hour earlier than usual to go to Chapel. 

but the undergraduates should know 
that the chapel system is really their own. 
It has come about through main years oi 
experimentation. If. however, it i 

omes apparent that ihe -indent- do 
not profit from it. it should be given up. 
No in-tii ut ion should be . i. in in ue< 1 simply 
t,, Follow a precedent. 

Morning chapel i- the oldest ot the 
college exercises. I .a a long time it was 
held five mornings a week. Then one 
morning was given up in order to have 
Assembly. Later two more were abandoned 
when Sunday Chapel wa- introduced, twelve years ago. 

Wednesday assembly was inaugurated 
aDOU l fifteen years ago to bring a world 

interest into our student life, which i- -o 
likely to be quite wrapped up in it- own 

campus affair-. It- aim is to bring before 
the -indents who have a message because 

ol what they have -een or done, or be 
I .,,,-,■ ol their connection with a great 

institution. They ■"<■ men in close touch 

with large affairs, 1 In \ are not secured, 

primarily, because ot a reputation for 

speaking but their word- should he ot 
interest to other men who think. It may 
be remarked that assembly wa- never 
planned to furnish entertainrm nt. 
Sunday chapel in various Forms has 

been tried. At first it W8S a church -r 

vke with voluntary attendance. Late 
vespers were introduced, but voluntary 
attendance never seemed to work well, 
and the Sunday exen i-«- had either to be 
given up or made compulsory . 

In 1910 the Senate worked o\.r the 
whole problem of chapel exercises. They 
presented to the students the plan now 
in vogue. It was adopted by popular vote 

and went into effect in the tail of 1911. 

Every >ear since then the students have 
voted t.> continue Sunday chapel. 

In the Ions' run student opinion must 

justify any college institution. H well- 
matured student opinion should conclude 

that time Spent at chapel is not well 
-pent the chapel e\erci-cs would be 
modified or given up. 

The student would he surprised to 
know how many Alumni express approval 

Of the s\siem. As they eo out in") the 
world they are tgad to have been kept 

in touch with questions of the day. 

They look back and think ot chapels and 
mblies as horizon-making.

aaya himself that our time is enough only 
for twelve creditaand not for twenty, yet 
be makes his three credits out of those 

twenty the hardest QMS. He believe, in 

rushing, not in giving time. 

Here is an illustration: during the term 

arc usually studied lout tilths or live- 
sixths oi the course in botany ; the n 

niain.ler, which is approximately two 

weeks work, we study during the time 
between the end ol classes and the 
beginning ol the final examinations. 1 
wonder how it would have been with us 
if one fifth of every course had been 
studied in the time between the end ol 
the term and the begi nning of the examin- 
ation- < >f course we are supposed to know 

the past without reviewing, and then 

then is some time in which we mav a- 

well utili/e by learning something new, 
but "would it not be interesting to look 

Lack over the trail and sum up the facts 

and principles which we have learned?" 

(See page 83, Anatomy and Physiology

Rushl And a taster rush befon the 

examinations when reviewing, and "sum-

This is what Dr. Torre\ and some others 
believe in. Rush! Catch a few facts here 

and then aa sou pan, but be sure to rush 
and get through with the book. Do not 

Stop, do not look around and become 

deeply interested in anything, but rush!

'The perfect

(Triis is the way one user describes Williams and the tick J ImfpCap) 




Men buy Williams expecting to find 
their main satisfaction in the Hinge- 
Cap. But when they first use the 
cream they get an equally pleasant 
surprise. The heavier lather, the 
greater thoroughness with which it 
softens the beard, make a hit at once. 
Then, Williams lather lubricates the 
skin so that the razor fairly "glides" 
the hairs off. And last, there's that 
delightful after-care of the skin. 
Truly, you'll find that with the Hinge- 
Cap Williams is "miles ahead." It's 
a pure cream without coloring matter 
of any kind.

I,, the Editor of the Collegian: 

In the Collegian oi Nov. 21 there ap- 
peared .m article by I>r. K. 1.. Torre} in 
which the students were Bayed. The 
apparent causes for the poor showing ol 
the students a- mentioned in the article 
are: first, heredity; and second, .1 sel <>t 
other causes which can I"' called collec- 
tively inferior preparation in secondary 
school. I agree with all his criticism, but 
in discussion ol the causes 1 think he has 
missed some factors which art- of greater 
importance than those lit- has mentioned. 

Heredity cannot be considered <>t prime 
importance in discussions of failures ol 
our students; first, because the mere fai 1 
that all our students have gone so far in 

education ■ a p 1 that they are not 

inferior-minded, and can continue the 
education Mill further; second, the number 
ut failures looms so high, especially in the 
oi freshman botany, that heredity 
cannot be considered as the prime cause. 
Other much more important causes must 
be looked for. 

Preparation previous to entrance into 
our college is ol course ol prime im- 
portance, but I think under "preparation" 
one must not only understand the school 
ing or home training, but also the stu- 
dent's character his desire and am- 
bition for education. 

Listen to a few words in favor of our 
a- men. I reshmen conn.' to our campus 
with a good preparation to carry on 
college work; ■ good preparation it not 
in schooling yet surely in character; 
they come here with a strong desire for 
schooling; ambitious, they come here 
trained for bard work as a result of yean 

DJ hard labor at home and 00 the farm; 

thej ""IK- here knowing that they will 

I to Work hard to earn their WSJ 

through college. No other college hat 

urystudents earning their waj through 
as a type of college like our MAC. — a 
college that is good proof of our student's 
ambition, industriouanees, strong will 
power, and everything else that makes 

Lip a good pari of "preparation - ' previous 

titrance into a college. Long tchoatfog 
without d e sire makes no scholars, l>ut 
ambition with some schooling will accom- 
plish much! This is the genuine prepar- 
ation that our freshmen have as they come 
mr campus. Nothing is the matter 
i our freshmen's preparation previous 
to entrance to the college, or at least the 
is not desperate. The trouble begins 
iK after their entrance. 
What are the troubles? Why <lo the 
tudentS fail in trying to learn to think, 
alleged by Hr. Torrey? The reasons for 

this are evident. First, the Students I 

in, rest in learning to think through 
college studio; second, they have 

little time for such kind of study. 

' mis idea be e xpr e s s e d more correct- 

the students, under *mit pftjfessors, 

despite their most sincere intention 

hard labor in trying to teach the 

to think, yet tail because <>t the 

rona system of education applied by 

' ese, I say best intent ioned professors, 

Students are not allowed and arc not 
dg taught to think. This is the answer. 

We will take for example the final 

nitration in Botany 25. We had to 

in and explain one hundred tlnrty- 

words and phrases, all of important 
■..HA significance, within an examin- 
n period. The copying of the question 

Khe< I , u hich was ala i required, alone took 
at least fifteen t<> twenty minutes; for the 
rest ol the work we had approximately 
three quarters ol a minute for eat h 
definition. Can anybody define or explain 
"Darwinism" or "Recapitulation" ot 
other Mich terms in three quarters of a 
minute? Why, ii is impossible; or it is 
possible, but the answers are likely to be 

thoughtless. So when Hie students saw 

theipiesiii.ii sheets, the first thought that 
came in their minds was; "No thinking 

allowed, all must lie writing if von waul 

in finish sometime tonight". Some fellows 

i \rn took their coats off to lie able tu 
write taster, and the contest began. We 

finished within three to four hours with 
some short stop, tu rest our fingers or to 
take a breath. 
Writing was done but not thinking. We 

wiule just what we had in our memories. 
It was an exen ise in physical work, but 
not ul thought. Is this the "(lean, clear 

thinking" about which Doctoi Fbrrey 
speaks so enthusiastically on the last 
page uf out second textbook <>t Botaa) ? 

A Student, when asked by Dr. Torrey how 

he came out uf th<- examination, answered, 
"I can't talk, my brain is dissolved". 
"Dissolved" is right, ask anybody who 
took that examination! Is this a correct 
way to teach men how tu think, oi 
v ncouraging men to think? 

But i en iinly we had plent v of time 
ami needed to do much thinking on the 
final examinations uf Professot Rand's 
English 28 or Physics 25, and some others. 
Thai was an instance showing how boys 
at some examinations ami some ret itation 
periods an- forced t<< become used to work 
without thinking, while those hours could 
be better utilized ii a different kind ut 
were given. Vet the biy. 

cause of the present year's sit uation is the 
preparation ol studies, tin- home assign 
ments. We < arrj s () rnanj i redits and 
take so many subjects, thai wc can do 
lion,' uf them well. So mm h emphasis is 
put on the practical pan, on separate 
disconnected facts, on mere facts without 
reasons behind them facts subject to mere 
memory, that there is no need, and 
absolutely no time, (or reasoning oi for 
trying to connect the facts bj a common 

principle, law, or theory. All we an- asked 

to do and all we have time to do is a mere 
memory ut facts. We memoriae the facts 
to pass tin examination, and we think 
that they are of practical import am • . But 
in© ted facts will never stay long in 

one's memory, and a college education 

becomes a failure. This js ii 1( - matter 

with our college; tOO many credits, \er\ 
little time, too mm h memory work, and 

very little reasoning and thinking. 

A- soon as a freshman enters colli 
is told that he has tu carry SO many credits 

with a certain average, and became there 

i- too much work to In- done, all he has 
time to do is just to get some tacts lure 
and there to pass the quizzes, lie has no 

;.i make himself deeply 
in any subject, lb- i- studying undei 
compulsion, not bet ause lie likes to. Under 

stem he loses his intet - 
studies, tu- tries to find more and more 

time tu rest himseil alter hard work. Even 

if it dues happen that a subject becomes 
verj interesting to him, he is in fear that 
he will get behind in other subjects which 
he is forced to take if he puts too much 
time on the subject in which he is in- 
terested, with the natural result that he 

drops his interc : to accomplish what it 
compulsory: that is, tu memorize a lew 

tlisM olinei ted l.n ts that will be soon 

forgot ten. I lius, ti a student becomes 
interested in a subjet i ami is read) t<> do 
independent and thoughtful work, oui 
s\st(.'iii dcstio\s his interest bj giving 
him too much uf other work to do. Bj 
overworking a freshman who conn 
our campus with ambitions, we deatroj 

his ambition within a short time. Ves, the 

longei he st.,\s at the college, the more he 

seeks and the inure lie finds time tu I" 

free ol itudies. It is a well recognized fact 
that freshmen study six hums a tl.w . 
sophomores lour, juniors three or two. 
and seniors two oi pel haps one. A college

mysterious business. Would it not be

Selection of Immigrants 

" I he future for United States immi-

those thai are think are can care for, and 
those who will fit into our life here." 
James \\ . < rook, professor ol economics 
at the Massachusetts Agricultural College 
and Amherst College, made iln^ state 
men! a^ a solut ion for t he < ondit ion which 
he described al assembly last Wednesday. 
Professor (rook said that Massachu- 
setts has the largest percentage ol foi 
born people ol any state in the Union. 
Five oi the ten cities in this country with 
the largest percentages of foreign born 
arc in this state. The speaker quoted 
main figures to show the condition ol the 

COItntr) a^ a whole. Some ol the ntOSl 

important follow. There are ninety five 

million white people in the United Slates. 
thirty-seven million ol whom are either 

foreign born or born of foreign parents. 
Thirty-five million people have com 
this country in the last hundred years, 
This is the greatest migration in History. 
Unlike other meat migrations, the people 
have not brought their politics and their 
leaders, a- such, with them. I his < ondit ion 
make- it more possible foi them to i i 
themselves to their new surroundings, 

What i- the i mac ol 'his great migra

other countries wish to be freed frohi 
military systems. According to the speak 
it. this suggestion is not true foi German 
emigrants, whose country had one ol the 
strongest militarj organizations in the

\i. \. C. Decisive Victor iii Easy Game 

A- the aftermath ol their I 'I' 1 ' 

hands < \ thi 5t |uinte1 Thui 

evening the Aggie b II team 

smothered the Norwich five on the Drill 
Hall floor last Saturday afternoon under 
i ;:; 7 score. 1 he ii» ol the score i • in 
dicative of the fact that, though the N 
,,. ;tm played good basketball their op 
ponenta urn- far inferior and failed to 
make but few ol th< ■• scvei il trii 
the basket count. 

The Bcoring was started Boon after the 
game bad roi well under way when 
Samueh foi \ggie dropped in the firsl 
basket from the Boor, lit- was followed bj 
I, m ple with another tally and a foul 
added one more point. "Sammy" caged 
three more and a foul before Smiley 
dropped in a fool. Samueh scored again 
from the Boot before the half ended, and 
Norwich had faikd to count. The end oi 
the half showed a 17-0 shutout .'".1 the 
mme promised to be very uncomfortable 
fur the visitor*. Samuels was going in top 
form and Norwich seemed unable i" solve 
the Aggie defense and fast passing under 
their basket. 

The Vermonters came back al the 
beginning of the second period with what 
looked more like basketball and started in 
by sinking a shot for two counts, but 
Temple soon took the wind out of their 
tails with two pretty ones from the floor 
ami Smiley followed suit with another. 
Two fouls and a basket by the vwhors 
gave them >i* pointa, and toward the 
middle ol the period a foul marked the 
end <•• their attempted come-back. 

Aggie showed aa much speed and 
cleverness aa they have the entire season 
but nttseed main <>i their eaaj shots, 
and the tax they let up <>n their 
defense for a moment at tiroes was re- 
sponsible for the Norwich baskets. 

For Norwich Nichols and Duolap were 
the best bets, both playing a good brand 
of basketball and with a little more co- 
operation from their teammates would no 
doubt have given a far betti i account ol 
themselves. For Agg«e Samuels and 
I emple played a fine game in the forward 
position while Smiley and Ferranti added 
ten and seven points to the Aggie score 
respectively. Captain Bike was relit 
early in the* game and was given a t ham • 
to rest up after his injury to in> knee. 
IIi> place was taken l>\ Gustafson who 
proved fiimself a capable man. who was

The Cut System 

The term <>i the present board <-i editors 
is r.i|>i(lly drawing i<> a '1"-" ll,i!V an ' 
still many topic- on which we wished to 
dwell in these columns There .ire many 
subjects which would bear discussion 
which have not been touched upon at all. 
And yet we are so interested in -ome few 
of the problems which we have brought to 
the attention of the student body already 
that we have decided to take .. chance on 
, completion oi our program in the future 
.Hid to devote the present to a reiteration 
,,t one of the problems which has hen 
discussed before. 

II, ,- question of a free-cut system 
aroused .i great deal ol comment on the 
campus, both hostile and favorable. We 
would like to take the present opportunity 
u> summarize our own arguments on tin 
ie and to answer some ol the objections 
which have come to ow attention. 

We believe that a system which allows 
the student toabsent himsell from cla 
without penalty would improve the 
scholastic standing <>t the student body. 
This would be true because ii would 
eliminate the co-called "gut" courses. 
[ nder the present system a professor 
can make his lectures as uninteresting and 
,.- lacking in instruction as he sees fit. 
The students have no alternative but to 
attend. Many a course could be passed 
with a creditable mark without attendance 
,u a single i lass exercise if over-cuts were 
not penalised. The present system merely 
insures the professor against lack ol an 
audience. Under a free-cut system such 
.i- has been in operation .it M.I.T. for 
many years successfully the professor 
would have to make the work of his course 
haul enough or interesting enough to 
guarantee attendance. He would have to 
hold his students by hi- personality or 
his knowledge or else he would be forced 

to resign. Without doubt, if such an 
institution were inaugurated here, large 
numbers of students would immediately 
enrole in "gut" courses to take advantage 
of the opportunity for cutting. The 
teacher in charge would be forced to 
stiffen the work to such a degree that his 

( in.- of the commonesl objections which 
has hem made to thn plan is that a great 
m mj students would Hunk ouf ol colli g< . 
Bui we feel that this is actually an argu 
ment in favor of the idea. The calibre ol 
student bodies in America is none too high 
at Lot. Patently, the ones who would 
suffer would be those least inten stcd in 
tin i r work and thus least qualified foi 
collegiate training. The hangers-on and 
the lazy ones would fall by the wayside. 
The diligent, industrious and intelligi nl 
ones would have their opportunities for 
•ell improvement augmented. ( lasses 
would not be held back by the inferior 
few. Yea, we feel that the argument is 
entirely in favor of a free cut Bystem 

rather than opposed thereto. 

Another statement whii h lias been made 
in relation to the proposed system i- that 
man) of the industrious students would 
ham habit- of slothfulness before it had 
done its work. We feel that this is entirely 
untrue. As soon as attendance in any i lass 
started to fall off the instructor would see to 

ii that the work was mad. harder. Hewoukj 

put material into the course that would 
require attendance at lei tore- to Insure 

the passing ol the final examination. And 
the first -indent- to realize the fact 

woidd be the industrious and intelligent 
ones. They would be the ones to do the 

work regularly and faithfully. They 

would be the ones to gain the reward. 

The lazy and disinterested one- would 

dropout to the advantage of their betters. 
Surely such a step would be radical. 
Naturally it would have to develop slowly 
before it came to the height of it- useful- 
ness. But the same is true <>f any system. 

We must look for the ultimate rather than 

the present good ol the institution. H we 
believe that such a plan would raise the 
standards both of instruction and scholar- 
ship it i- our duty to see that it i- insti- 
tuted. While we dO not believe that SUctl 

.i system would be a panacea for all the 
ill, ol collegiate life we do believe th n 

it would be a great step forward and thai 
it would mark the beginning ol a new and 

better period in the 'li-tory of the college. 

Five Minutes With PfWX) 

(in the subject ol student interest in 
the major questions ol the day, I hesitate 
to say anything which would seem as a 
critii ism, for a member ol the faculty 
not always know just what is being 

thought and said b\ Students. I wonder. 

however, if the Students do take enough 

interest in politics. I realize that the 
time element enters into it prominently, 
th u the student has his hands prettj full, 
and that under Buch a condition it is 

natural for him to seek ie. rcilion when he 
has -pare I hue. 

Moreover, I think it is almost too much 

to expect that students shall give full 
consideration to these questions, unless 
there i- faculty leadership. The students 
need a background, ladmitth it we haven't 
been able so far to maintain a -tall to 
handle such matters. I hope the college 
can soon take the leadership. 
Nevertheless, 1 question whethei stu- 
dents lure or at any college are -mil 
ciently interested in these larger questions. 

|| the) don't take an interest in and 
understand them it leave- America in a 

putts bad way . for it should be the 
college trained men, especially th'>-<- 
educated in state institutions who lead 

the wa\. 

Short of having sufficient ottering- m 
our curriculum, which we hope to have 
before long, the only thing which I can 
urge is for students and groups of students 

to vet together a- much a- possible to 
disCUSS these matters. The habit ol 

reading journals dealing with these 
quest ion- i- one to be cultivated. I should 
recommend 'The Outlook," "The Literary 

I hgest " and the editorial- in the "Spring 

held Republican." Ideally a man will get 

a chance to read .i book now and then 
dealing with the-e major questions. There 
i- no trouble in -e. tiring advice from the 
faculty a- to what to read. 

i me hundred seventy -i\ years ago 
sororities and fraternities came into 
existent e in this country. There have been 
700,000 members of fraternities and 
sororities in the years which have passed 
since that time. This year ii i- estimated 
thai 500,000 are wearing pins. An average 
,,t 10,000 are initialed even ycai . Vp 
proximately 200 fraternities and Boroities 
with 1800 chapters are existing in 660 
college- and universities throughout the 
country, The tola) cost of the houses 
owned by the members themselves i- 
estimatedat $21,000,000. 

Alter all ii i- up to the college man to 
get i ii r , > the habit of reflecting on the 

fundamental issues of the time. A- I see 
it the,,' issues are the democratic control 
,,• industry, 'be preserving ol agriculture, 
the ironing out ol rate relati inships, the 

in--. illation o( -ome method .>t control ol 
international affairs, and the application 
of real religion to all personal and collective 
action- of mankind. 

The lull- College Radio Club is 
rapidly developing into one of the best 
radio clubs in New England. The club 

was started in 1911 with a charter member- 
ship of eight. Up to the present year no 
special interest could be aroused because 
of lack of equipment and an experimental 

-tat ion. These hindrances were overcome 
when a room was given over to the club 
for use as an experimental station. Sets 
of the most modern types | Neut rodyne, 
Super-regenerative, and Super-neut rodyne 
have been constructed and operated with 
great success. The one-half kilowatt 

transmitter will soon be replaced by a 
5-watt radio telephone. The station baa 
already been licensed by the government 
and has been assigned the call letters, 
l-DZ. l-DZ is affiliated with the American 

Two unique courses have recently been 

opened, a one term course in Walking tl 
Northwestern I niversity, and evening 
classes, .i correspondence course, and a 
four-year course in meat packing at the 
University oi Chicago. This latter work 
i-, being given in cooperation with the 
Institute oi American Meat Packers. 

Expenses lor n.eii at Northwestern 
University will be reduced by their 
voluntary decision to join the women ol 
the college in observing three "datele— " 
nights a week. The action was taken by 
representatives of fraternities and other 

groups in the interest of student- working 
their way who are not able to finance 

extensive social life. The recent survey ol 

the student body showed that fifty per- 

cent of the men are entirely or partly on 
their own resources. 

In commenting on this action. Presi- 
dent Scott say-: 'We want to give the 
brains a chance to survive instead of

Dear Sir: 

It i- interesting to be a stud. m. 
pe. ialtj iii a foreign country. But over in 
Europe, particularly England, foreign 
students get throughl) spoilt. My! what 

a fuss the English people make over 

them. At home,, receptions, tea-parties, 
dinners, and dana - d'galore. And you 
know too much hob-nobbing amon 
people of importance is not altogether 
wholesome. I Have known cases ol lumpy 
throats when eventually the farewell 

tune arrived. 

When I arrived in this country, I was 
afraid tesl some day I too should begin 

to get Sick. But BO far I have weathered 
the Storm pretty well. No ubi.piilou- 

American has made my life burdensome 
by any over-dose ol social morphia-; and 

BO in -pi'e of the freezing weather you 

have around Amherst, I have managed 

to -III A ive. 

I was several months in fact years in 

New York, but that i- another -tory. . . 

And then I ate brought me to Ma-. 
Aggie, a fate which even the old Tent- 
maker might well envy 

Nature has endowed me with one ol 

those dispositions, that see a lake, enjoy 

it and -tore it over for a rainy day. Here 

i- a sample. 

When I first arrived here. I wa- an 

object of amusement. Every one icon 

noiteied iiu- like they do a bear in the 
ring. It is a great Stand-by to have a 
friend in oneself, for did I not discover 
this during those -tark, chilly nights, 
when it poured and poured and poured. 

I tramped about the campus, promenaded 

the stately avenue-, and sauntered through 

the velvetty lawn, in the uncrowded 
company of all myself. 

And then came the time for meal-, 
which carried me to the great Hash 
House. Human nature gets garrulous when 

heel -teak vapors ascend the old factory. 
Every one stood in line, and chattered 

lik,. ,, bobolink; only where I -t I 

prevailed that peace which pa-eth under- 
standing. Then With a trav ol savory 

meat- I hastened to the only vacant seat 

in tne midst of a jolly crowd, thinking 
that U"W Was my opportunity to have 

some fun. Hut mv presence cast a shadow 
and clapped an extinguisher over the 
sopnistries of the rollicking crowd, one by 
one the] rose and went their way, until 
the whole crowd vanished like a patch ot 
smoke. Everywhere around me men 
jostled lor room, tables were overcrowded. 
I oitd laughter tippled round the merry 
circles, and merriment filled the entire 
room; only in mv little corner reigned 

"peace, perfect peace", and there I sat - 
sole monarch ol all I surveyed.

Laverie ol Stevens started the scoring 

alter -ome last passing by the visitors in 
the lir-t minute ot play, with a puttv 
shot from under the basket. Aggie 

followed a moment later with a tallj and 

for the entile first hall the si ore wa- verv 

close, only varying !>v one or two points 

At the end of the i>criod the Stevens team 
led with eleven point- to Aggie's nine. 
In the second halt the visitor-, unable 

to -olve the Aggie defense, chose to lag 

with the ball out ol danger hut a change 

in tactics by the Agates put the ball In 

play again and the Cherry live iuml'ep 
into a 17-9 lead before the home bov - 
found themselves, llowevci a pretty over- 
hand shot by Samuels for Aggie added 
two more point- lo the low score, and 

fouls brought the Gore-men to within 

two points of their opponents Steven- 
added three more lo their lead before t he 
. ie five (aged two baskets and a foul 
making it JO 20. A foul by each team 

increased the score to twenty-one all and 

with but a scant three seconds to go 
Zullikson won for himself the honors of 
the day Which brought to Steven- the 
distinction of being the first visiting team 
to win a victory on the Aggie Moor in over 
two season-. 

Hoth team- -howed an excellent brand 

of pa— ing but both also missed several 
shots under the baskets that should have 

gone toi tallies. Hei ause of the speed 

with which the team- handled the ball 
the fouls were numerous and costly. Tin 
personal foul rule made several substitu- 
tions necessary and slowed up the game 

to -ome extent. Aggie took advantage of 

fouls making eleven good, to Steven-' nine. 

The Aggie forwards were held to live 

baskets, being the only men lo score lor 

the home team, while Laverie led the 
held with four tallies from the (loot to 
his credit, for the visitor-. Samuel- ami 

Temple caged three and two respectively 

lor Aggie and both played good basket 
ball. The loss ol ( aplain Hike lor personal 
fouls wa- a blow to tin Aggies, and the 

team seemed to -low up their stride to 
-ome extent, and "Eddie's" usual one or 
two baskets were sorely missed by the 

Maroon and While. 

'I he game Was one of those few in w hii h

question of which aggregation would have

The final number on the program was a

from 2000), which was similar to the 
sophomore act in the Aggie Revue, and 

featured Frost and Kennedy, ivory

English philosopher and man 
of science. Studied at Oxford 
and the University of Paris. 
Wrote the Opus Majus, Opus 
Minus, Opus Tertium, and 
many other treatises. 

More than a million dol- 
lars a year is devoted to 
research by the General 
Electric Company in 
order that the giant — 
electricity— may be 
made more and more 
useful to mankind. 

For this he was 

sent to prison 

Roger Bacon may not have invented gun- 
powder, as has been claimed by some biog- 
raphers of the famous Franciscan friar, but 
he exploded some of the outstanding errors 
of thirteenth century thought Because of 
his advanced teachings, Bacon spent many 
years of his life in prison. 

In an age of abstract speculation he boldly 
asserted the mathematical basis of all the 
sciences. But even mathematical calcula- 
tion, he showed, must be verified by ex- 
periment, which discovers truths that spec- 
ulation could never reach. 

In the Research Laboratories of the Gen- 
eral Electric Company, Bacon's principles 
are followed in every experimental investi- 
gation. The gas-filled electric lamp and 
the electron tube were worked out on 
paper, but it was experimental verification 
of the underlying mathematical theory that 
made electric illumination, radio broadcast- 
ing and X-rays what they are today.

were showering tlu-ir opponents' goal with 
shots and onl\ bv some (lever -tops and a 
lot more luck was the Armv goal tender 
able to prevent a score. 

Marinelli, i enter for West Point, was 

the individual star of the game storing all 

three DOWta for his team. He was last and 
clever OH the ice and was a good shot. 

Weetphalinger, right defense fin the Army, 

and by far the largest man on either team, 
was ,i strength on the defense, 

lor Aggie there was no individual star, 
the three forwards carrying the ball down 
the ice again and again only to have the 

shot blocked at the cage. Captain Gold- 
smith, who is seriously injured at t he 
Contej Dickinson Hospital in North- 
ampton as the result ot a blow m the e-ve 
sustained in the Springfield game, was 

great I) missed as his coaching and en

Wilson was without exception the greatest 

president WC have ever had. None had 

such wonderful powet ol e xpr essing

beyond reproach and ,,s a public official

the Aggie team swamped their opponents 
7-1. ii u., .i costl) vh torj for the Agates 
however, for the> lost the servii e ol Gold- 
m ith, the captain and one ol the most 
itile hard working players on the 
team. In the second period, during a hot 
scrimmage in front ol the Vggie goal, 
Goldsmith was seen to stumble; he 
straightened and then slipped slowly 
to the ice, blood gushing from a Mow 
!„• had received <>n his < ye, probably 
caused by a hockey stick. He was taken 
to the Dickinson Hospital in Northampton. 
S. Gordon substituted for Goldsmith, 
and tin- nam, stirred by the misfortune ol 
their captain, increased their efforts and 
wen- able to -'ore lour point- during the 
,.,,„„! period. The score ai the end ol 
this period was M.A.C. 1. Springfield I. 
In the third period they maintained 1 1 1* -

i amb and Nichol a- usual led the Aggk 
offence, Lamb caging four goals and Nichol 
one. They were ably backed by Moberg 
and Crosby, each ol whom scored once. 

Kane played well at goal, ami (.onion 
playing in his firsl varsity game, also 
merits praise. 

For Springfield the outstanding player 
waa Weatberall, the big left wing.

It was a tough game to lose and only 
the one unlucky break of the game pre 
vented the Aggie sextet from bringing 
home a win. The game was hard and clean

duty of every student to see that the

Perhaps we are nuking a mountain out

that something was done. If, on the other

and to caution the student body against 

degenerating laxity.

by persistent rumors around the campus 
ot late to the eltect that violations of the 
honor system are b ec o min g common in 
the lower classes. There seems to be a 

general feeling that the honor system 
ia not accomplishing its purpose in these 

cases. Infractions of the rules seem to be 

pretty well confined to the lower classes, 

perhaps through ignorance .is to the 
working of the system or lack of reali- 
zation of the consequences. It is certain 

that no man who understands the harm 

which be is doing to the college and to 

himself by permitting himself to be 

guiltv of transgression oi the rules would 

continue such a practice. 

There is little question among the 

uppcrclasstncn who have worked under 
the system for three or four years as to 

its utilitv and worth. Those who are the 

most familiar with it are its staunches! 

supporters. They are the ones who are 

disturbed by the rumors as to its m . 

I Hie iency. They realize the good which 
Mic h a system can do, both ill aiding the- 
reputation of the college and in b ettering 
the condition of the students. Certainly 
such a system increases the responsibility 

of the student who applies it. He learns to 
look out for himself and to rely on himself. 
He develops his sense of right and wrong 
and strengthens his character. He comes 
t.p know his strength and his limitations 
Letter than he ever could do without it. He 
gets the habit 
for results and not 
of others. His self-reliance is increased to 

the maximum. 

There are doubtless several points in 
which the honor system has failed. Several 

of the provisions have been all too gener- 
ally neglected. Hut the part which has 
seen the most abuse is the' provision that 
any roan who sees another in the act ot 
cribbing shall report the offense to the 
honor council. It is, perhaps, natural that 
this point should be overlooked. No 
Student likes to get the reputation of 
being a "squealer '. No one likes to take 
a chance on reporting an action which 
appears to be an infraction of the rules 
tot tear that it may have' been harmless 

The rumors which have been 
circulated during the past few 
weeks concerning the integrity 
of members of the Honor Council, 
have been successfully traced to 
a source that is as malicious as 
it is untruthful. 

The man who originates or 
promotes such a rumor has no 
place in the college world. 

Men and Teams 

A very significant fact made itself 
evident to the- writer at West Point last 

Saturday. The number ol students at 

that institution is only slightly gre-ate-r 

than the- number of male students at 

this college', bast Saturdav afternoon the 
Wot Point Military \e ..demy had six 
varsitv teams in action at one time. How 
do the) do it ? 

Every man at West Point is compelled 

to go out for some tortn ot spoil each 
spring and tall until he graduates. If he 
is not a candidate for a 'vat sit v team •he 
must go out for his company team and 
work the- whole seaSOS. This ruling is 
Compulsory and much valuable material 

has been brought to light i" this manner. 

The men that enter West Point are 
not physical marvels by any means. They 
merely have no serious physical defects 
and their system of athletics is wholly 
responsible for the excellent re-suits which 
they achieve. There is no reason why, 
with a good system ol physical education 
at this institution, we could not gain the 
same results. We cant blame the depart- 
ment as they an handicapped by lack ot 
funds and by lack of aiterest on the part 
of the student body. 

Every man should, for his own good if 
er couki no wit now it. ne . - , , , ... •■ •■

of a small college spirit. Why can't every 
man come out for some varsity team? If 
there is some physical reason to prevent, 
it is a well known laet that there are 
not enough candidates out for manager- 
ships. Show a college spirit bigger than

1. The movies: Rooms with oak furni-

pipes, mandolins, and largely lettered 
sweaters. Dances, and p r a ctic a l jokes, 
with the man who studies as the imprac- 
tical joke. 

2. The novel written by an older man: 
The entry of the badly dressed Frosh. 

The harel life. The studying. The saving 

of the captain's life. The rise to popularity, 

and the triumphant graduation.

Debating here on the campus has 

partially come back into its own during 
the past two year*, but there is still a 

long way to go before it reaches the place 

to which it is entitled. Being large!) 

confined to the winter term, the men who 
have any ability go out for Other activities 
at the beginning of the year and then find 

themselves overburdened with work when 

it comes time for the debating work to 

begin. In an institution <>l this -\/.v there 

are necessarily onlj a few men with the 

interest and the ability to take part in 

the intercollegiate- debates, and when 

they are all loo biisv with other interest- 

to lake on the debating work, the quality 

ol the- teams is naturally inferior to what 

it should be. When a call for candidat es 

is posted on three bulletin boards for a 

week and two notices read in Chapel, and 

no men respond, there is something wrong 

with the student body which is probably 
a lack of interest in activities. There art- 
enough men in college to elo the work 
connected with all the activities without 
overburdening any particular man as 
is now the case. If we .ire ge>ing to have 
these various undertakings on the campus. 
it is up to the students lo siipplv the men 
lo carry them on as they should be, and 

not put the responsibility tor everything 
on a few overworked men. 

On February 18 at S p. m. in the upper 
Memorial Hall our debating team will 
meet the Inhcr-ity of Maine- team. In 
spite of the lack of material for the 
team, the men who are on it have worked 
hard and to a considerable extent over- 
coming the- various drawbacks in their 
way, and are ready to put up a good fight 
for the honor of M.A.C. It is too late now 
to make the team, but everyone can help 
I iv being present to encourage the team. 
Let's show Maine that we are not dead 
in respect to our interest in the- combat 
of brain anel wit.

Five Minutes with Prexy 

There are se-veral matters before- the 

Legislature in which the college is very 
much interested. 

The college budget for current e-x|M-nsc- 

this year, which is included a- a part of 
the Governor's budget, «ivc-s m about 

what we- gol last veat. It has been cut 
from the trustee's re conimeiidat ion, bow- 
e-ver, and will not enable us to do anything 

new in any line. The special budget, 

which elc-als with new buildings and t he- 
like, has be-en cut from $1X0,1)00 to 
120,000 ami is the smallest we have- had 
in many years. We hope that it may lie 
increased la-fore the present session is over. 


There- is a bill pending to take the 
authority for passing on research publi- 
cations of the Experiment Station out of 
the hands of the Commission on Adminis- 
tration anil Finance, so that the Director 
may decide- what publications ihall be 
printed. This is being backed by the 
agricultural organizations as well as by 
the college trustees. 


A bill to authorize a food supply com- 
mission to study the entire food supply 
of the state, re-ally was elevise-d at t he- 
college and is receiving sup|)ort from the 
Department of Agriculture, the Orange, 

tne Tartu Hure-au Federation, the Associ- 
ated Industries, the State- Cha m b e r of 
Commerce, Labor bilious, the State 
federation of Women's Clubs, ami has 

the formal approval of the Governor. 

So far there is no indication as to what 
the Legislature will do with the rcjiort 
of the Commission in Higher education. 
Their rctxirt affected the college as three 
points. First, that we shoulel train experts 
on food supply as well as do research and 
extension work in that field. Second, we 
coulel strengthen our work in Home 
Lconomics. Third, there is tin- possibility 
of developing junior colleges on terms 
affecting this institution. It is too early 
to sav just what tin- Legislature- will do 

with this report. 


It would be hard to say whether the 
law- as regards state administration of 

the- college will be modified this ye-ar or 
whether we shall continue tor a further 
time under the control of the stale ad 
ministration board. Probably the coil) 
will have to lake its chance with other 

institutions in this respect. 

Class Memorials 

lust now while- there is an exhibit of 
paintings on view in Memorial Huilding 
is the time to call attention to the need of 
more imagination in the selection ol class 
memorials. If a college class, for example, 
might decide to buy a good painting for 

the permanent enrichment of the Mem 
orial Huildmg that woulel be some-thing 
worth while. And if several successive 
classes should follow suit we might some 
day have a collection which would be of 
great value to the student body. 

Statuary, plaques, drinking fountains, 
sun dials, and similar furnishings, placed 
in or near college buildings, cm be- made 
very attractive. Our grounds and build- 
ings are seriously lacking in such refine- 
ments. If by these means, and erthers, we 
COUld cultivate an atmosphere of refine- 
ment and culture upon our campus it 
WOUM quite certainly become a beneficial 

influence in college life, an influence which 
could hardly be- resented by our I** 1 

hopelessly practical critics. 

Good, honest decorative seats at 
suitable points on the grounds would 
have a considerable practical value. If 

properly designed and placed they would 

abo enhance the beauty of the campus.

Determined to whip the Jumbos by a 

SCOM of which they could be proiul the 
Aggie quintet stalled the- second half of 
the game at the first whistle-, and did not 
let up until the final signal was sounded. 
Their defence tightened and the Tufts 
men were unable to gain, making but two 
baskets, one- of which was from mid-floor. 
The peried had hardly started when 
Wilson, left guard for Tufts, fouled 
Harrows anel thus let in another point 
for the Aggie team. Dawson. Tutls left 
forward, made a pretty try at the basket 
from mid-floor, but failed to make a goal.

Rogers of the Tufts team, an attempt 
which abo tailed. Daw son again tried for 
a basket, ami it was plain i" l«- seen thai 
the JumbotiH-n were out to < ill down the 
Aggie lead if it were in any way possible. 
It looked for a minute as though the) 
might be- successful when Wilson, running 

under the baakel behind the- Agv;ie- de- 
fence, shot a pretty backhand basket, and 

another point followed on a foul by 
"samuels. A toul on the part of Wilson 

resulted in another poinl for the- < .ore-men, 

and was followed by a superb long shot 

from well down the tloor by Abie's 

-hortcst man. Smiley, swelling the Aggie- 
total to 17. Wilson immediately followed 
with the- most sensational shot of I he 
• ve-ning from mid tloor. when the ball 
danced about the hoop for some seconds 
before finally dropping through. 

From then on the game- became- fast, 
and the attempts at baskets became 

numerous, Captain "Eddie" Hike and 
"Shorty" Evans leading the way for their 
respective teams. Evans made try alter 
try from well out in the tloor for long 

shots at the basket, but was unsuccessful 

in all of them. Fcrranti went in for 
Harrows, and was shortly replaced by 

Temple. After a minute's play. Temple 

dropped another through the hoop. 

n-ing the seore to 23, and then the 

Tufts men took the ball for several tries. 

A long pass from Samuels to Smiley, then 

k to Samuels who had run under the 

..iske-t brought the ball through for 

mother tally. The last two baskets 
followed in quick sua ession in a furious 

ttstl during the last minutes of play. 
Tufts had the ball, anel made several 
tries at the Aggie basket, finally passing 
it out for another try. A long pass for 

.mother attempt was intercepted by 

■Samuels, who SO took the Tufts team by 
-urprise- by his high iump, that he was 
entirely to himself, anil by a quick 
motion had dropped the ball through the 
basket before a men on either team could 
reach him. Another pas> from Smiley to 

Samuels brought in the final tally tor the 
Agates, giving them a final victory ovei 

the Medloiditcs. 

Team woik was the- secret '>! the Aggie 
stiiiis-, team veork which siood out in 

contrast to the several attempts of Tufts 
men for individual honors. In spite "i 
this, however, the work of Samuels and 

Smih-v stood out above- the Others. The 

combination ot the two short men, who 

teemed to be- able to wriggle- aiound 

inside- the Tufts defence in spin- ol all 

attempts to stop them, resulted in m.uiv 
ol the Aggie goals. Lvans and Dawson 
did the best work for the Jumbo team, 

with Wilson doing himself credit of the 
highest type.

problem, is the vital question ot the 
Slate's lood supply. The Massachusetts 

Agricultural College has a commendable 

record ol helpful service- in encouraging 

farm production; nevertheless, farm pro 

eluetion has Steadily declined until less 
than S |x-r cent of our food supply is 
raised within the boundaries of the- State, 
more than 02 per cent In-ing shipped in 

from beyond the borders. Something 

radical must be- done to remedy this 
startling situation. The- commission be- 
lieves the- agricultural college cm ami 

should devise wavs and means by which 
farm production can be- made more 

attractive- and profitable to the- farmer, 

and more economical to the consumer. 

While- the commission recognises that 
liberal and cultural studies have- their 
pro p er place in an agricultural currii ulum, 

vet it feels sued courses should be COO 

tribuioiv io the- dominant purpose of the 
i ollege. 

"The food problem has become more 

complex in recent years, involving two 

olhei problems than piodin lion: 'II on 

servaiion oi lood materials, through the 

eliniinat ion ol waste- and development ol 

the use ol by-products; <_' Scientific 
marketing, including adequate and eco 
mimical transportation, and ample storage 

facilities. I he Slate needs not onlv trained 
farmers, producing crops and raising live 
stiw k, but it also needs trained managers 

of storage, fertiliser, and food processing 
plants, transportation managers, market 
specialists, dietitians, agricultural control 
s|mi ialists. and others trained in the three 
told problem of agricultural production, 

conservation and distribution. 

"To provide these specialists will require 
additional facilities to organise and 
develop the subject matter ol instruction, 

and to devise- wavs and means ol CO 

operating with other institutions in re- 
search and instruction in the problem of 

production, conservation and distribution. 
"In nearly all land grant colleges then- 
are i nurses in home economil s. Such 

courses arc of vital importance to tin- life 

anel happiness of the homes of the Slate. 
The agricultural < olle-ge now provides 
only a few such courses. Young women 
who wish instruction in tin various fields 

of home ei onomii i must seek it elsewhere. 

Here is a pie-i e of edticat jonal service 

which property belongs to this college and 

whie:h should be oflered at Once. Addition

Choice of a Career 










From the Yale News 







Someone, probably an insurance 
agent, was quoted recently as saying 
that from the mass of one hundred 
college graduates one individual only 
rose to the Polo and butler class, peril- 
ously tiear the top of the financial lad- 
der. Five others became comfortably 
off and found themselves after twenty 
years at the small yacht and chauffeur 
stage. The other ninety-four presum- 
ably congregate in the great section of 
the American people who drive their 
own Huicks to the golf club. In other 
words, dreaming about being a rich 
man is one thing, and making the grade 
is something else again." 

Yet the ninety-four presumably work 
just as hard as the sumptuous six. Their 
business is the axis on which a small 
and uninteresting world revolves. They 
have become devotees of the dollar 
and when that fickle deity deserts, have 
nowhere else to turn. Jammed in a 
dull, straight rut of business they tan 
never leave the road and jump the fence 
into finer fields of life. This, then, is 
the portion of ninety-four men out of 
every hundred now on the campus. 

The answer to the problem lies in 
the proper choice of a career. 

Between now and Commencement we 
shall have something to offer on the 
subject of "Careers." Watch for the space 
with the Famous Signature.

the breach; at no time were they headed. 

The result of this rare V/aS rather 

disillusioning since all of our runners have

than they exhibited Saturday. Due to 
this woeful performance and to the fad

leriet of games with thai team. The high 
scorer for the co-ed team was Rebecca

their high scorer was Alice GoodnOW. 


The Y.W.CA. Cabinet and members of

advisors at Miss Skinner's otitic last 
Tuesday afternoon to discuss plans and 
business of the Association. 


At a recent meeting of the Y.W.CA. , 
it was voted that the local Association 
should become affiliated with the National 
Association. Such an affiliation means the 
strengthening of the MAC. organization. 


The Y.W.t 'A. ineml>ership drive has 
beta completed and has remitted in a 
total of thirty-eight meml>ers. No efforts 
have been made this year, as in previous 
seasons, to secure a one hundred per cent

This year, only those definitely interested 
in the organization have become a part 
of it. 


The third of the series ol discussion 
groups met at Memorial Hall after 
assembly last Wednesday to talk over

under the auspice- ol the So, ial I nion \>\ 

Miss Mar} Potter, famous American

high quality and the work of Mr. \i\

has but recently come to this country, 
was outstanding 

Mi. Angela Boschetti, the Italian bari- 
tone, opened the concert with a group ol 

songs, followed l>\ Sir. Duller with a trio 

ot violin -olos. Miss I'ottei then lang a 

leu songs which brought out the full

Students Note to Create 
Stronger Sentiment in Support 
of Council 

A \ei\ thorough discussion ol the 
llonoi System at this college occupied 
ne.ub the entire time al aasembl) last 
Wednesday, (he aasembl) was given ovei 
the regular student forum foi this term, 

The first question brought up was tha 
status oi the college song leader. Loringi 

the present song leader, wa- asked lor 

his views on the subject. He explained 

that the present system provides that th 
leader of the ( dec ( lu!) i- (he College sonn 

leader, automatically. He said that the 
qualities of a < dee < Hub leadet are not 
necessarily those ol a college sonn leader. 
He suggested that a better plan was foi 

the student hods to elect ■ song leader 
independent <>l the < .lee Club. A motion 
was < amed giving the Senate power to 
draw up a plan for t he elet tton ol a song 

leadei l.\ the -indent body. 

A imiioi i hange was carried by vote of 
the student bod) regarding the room in 

which examinations are taken. 

Stevenson reported lor the Hole. i 

Council, lb- said that there are onl) two 
attitude- to take in regard to the present 
system. We have reached a crisis and we 
must eithei accept the system oi throw it 
down, lie reported thai eight cases have

but it tries to be fail I he HotlOl < oum il

that the Honor System must be main- 
tained. The chiel difficult) was ascribed 

to the la ill ire ol stud "ill - to re pi, i I , heating

quired to report a man wa- appealed to; 
the benefit to the man reported was 
shown by one man; the fact that the

brought out. This fact was shown to be 

of importance because ol the opinion of 
t he i ollege held by alumni, undergraduatt - 

and those who ale planninn to oihi \|

cheating is practically confined to the

that this fact is !»■• ause ol the dittn ull

Rhode Islander* Win In I ->*« Seconds 
of Piny 

'III, \l i \ggie basketball team jour- 
neyed to Kingston, R. I. last Frida> 
when the) played the Rhode Island State 
College quintet. In the fastest game in 
which either team has engaged this season 
the Rhode Island boys barelj nosed out 
their old rivals in the last lew seconds oi 
play and won what was anybody's game 
until the final whistle, with a 19-18 

Samuels ol Aggie Btarted the scoring 
right «.il the bat with a tally from the 
,!,„„ and Temple Mink anothei double 
counter before G. II. .-lam scored for the 
home nam making k (,,,<1 two l,vr ,,1< "-- 
Both teams battled on an even bask the 
entire half and lefl the floe* in an ll-U 

dead lock. 

Samuels began the scoring again the 
the second hall and was followed by 
Smiley, when Hudson tallied making the 
count 15-13 in favor ol Aggie. A pretty 
shot by Rabraowita tied the score, but a 
moment later Temple hooped the ball 
giving the viahorsa two-point margin. At 
this point Jensen relieved Kal.iiu.wit/. for 
Rhode Island and started right in by 
caging one from the floor tying the 
■core once more. 

A foul committed on Smiley, which he 
made Rood, gave the Agates the lead again 
with oids three minuti Neither 

team scored until with only twenty seconds 
left to play, Pinto received a pass from 
the side, and dribbling twice, dropped the 
ball neatly through the iron just as the 
final whistle sounded, awarding thr game 
to Rhode [aland by the close margin ol 

Both the team- played exceptional 
basketball but the Aggie nun seemed the 

better trained ol the two dubs and per 

haps did not exert themselves to the 
limit. Had the home team played the ball 
more the score might have been different, 
but then doubtless the Vgates would have 
shown more of their speed .md shooting 
io still keep the score close. The game was 

similar in main respects to the one be 
tween Aggie and Steven- a short time ago, 
in which the winning basket was >lu>t just 
at the whistle blew. 

For the visitors Samuels and Femple 

kept up their enviable record ol shooting, 

h getting three from the floor, rhey 

Worked Well tOgethei and were a hard 

combination for Rhode Island to beat, 
[ones played his usual game at center 

while Hike and Smiley took good care ot 
their guard positions well, the latter 
accounting for lour points in the -core. 
lensen and Hudson both did well for 
Rhode Island, and it was their clever 
shooting that put their team in a position 
to win with Pinto's pretty basket at the 
end of the game 

Worcester Quintet N<» Match for 
Farmers who Score Heavily from Start

Rhode Island State basketball team Fri 
day evening the Mass. Vggies went to 
Worceetei and had little difficulty in 
subduing the (lark University quintet to 
the turn- of -'."> 15. Clark never had a 
chance for the Farmer boys piled up a 
ore the first half and took matters 
rather easy in the final period, sending in 
the substitutes to < arry on the game. 

b, the first period Aggie played tiny 
around her opponents and not knowing 
iK what to expect played a close 
game, doing a great deal ol passing and 
working the ball in under the basket 
time and again to shoot at close ra 
As a result the hall ended with the score 
17 ■:; in Aggie's favor. 

Clark looked a lot better in the second 
half and succeeded in adding several 

point- to their poor -tart, but though they 

succeeded to some extent in checking the 
Aggie passing they were unable to ovei 
come the lead obtained l»\ the visitors in 

the first half, and had to be contented with 

a 28 18 drubbing. They were no match 
foi the Farmers, but they had previously 
showed good basketball when they de 
hand Rhode Island at Kingston. 

Temple was the high scorer foi 
contributing eleven points to the score.
